  1. You chose some VERY interesting examples this week Philo. I think I may have heard about the Titanic museum at some point but I’d not seen in. It really does resemble a ship! And I loved the colorful example of Bryggen – it really made me smile. your quotes are perfect this week as well.

    1. Thank you Tina for your kind and encouraging words.
      Your theme is an interesting subject, which many ignore since the subject about ‘architecture’ is given least importance by many.
      Most of us are busy taking selfies in front of the monuments or buildings (with great designs) rather that going in detail about the art and the talents of the artists/sculptures.

    Glad to know that you visited the museum.
    I was admiring the scientific advancement as early as 1912.
    Hats off to human brain!
    And how well the museum is able to attract tourists based on a storey line.
    I wish ever country makes use of their history in an appropriate manner to bring awareness for the future generations .
