🕯I just spend the most magical evening at the Daniel Boone Historical site. The entire village was lit solely by candlelight and included short vignettes in each building performed by reenactors in period clothing. Each structure was bedecked inside and out with holiday greenery and included cheerful fires crackling inside. I wish I had photos to share with you, but flash photography wasn’t allowed and my iPhone wasn’t behaving. If you are in the St. Louis area next weekend, this is a must-see for holiday revelers! 🕯. 📷: St. Charles County, Missouri . . . #christmas #christmastime #stlouis #danielboone #historiclandmarks #historicalcostume #victorian #georgian #1700s #1800s #pioneers #americanfrontier #candles #candlelight #livinginthepast #oldhouse #oldhouselove #historicalfashion

Brent was at the Association of Preservation Technology (APT) conference and fell in love with the incredible Art Deco Buffalo City Hall (1931), especially the majestic and heroic decorative art murals that capture the spirit of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. Brent's very favorite was the construction mural that depicts the god of construction overseeing man's endeavor to build and create great things. #buffalocityhall #artdecostyle #apt #happy50thanniversaryAPT #michealangelo #decorativearts #muralart #inspired #neverstoplearning #apassionforcraft #whatwebuilddefinesus #historiclandmarks

St. Mark's Historic District is a historic district located in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. The district was designated a city landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1969, and it was extended in 1984 to include two more buildings on East 10th Street. 📷 by @nyclovesnyc #stmarkshistoricdistrict #explorenyc #explorenewyorkcity #newyorkcitytrip #newyorkcitylife #eastvillagenyc #eastvillage #historiclandmarks #great_captures #great_captures_city

Great show at the DHC/ART in Montreal exploring the “production of national culture and its instrumentalization for political aims” by London-based Slovenian artist Jasmina Cibic, titled Everything That You Desire and Nothing That You Fear. Four women discuss on a sustained level the value of preserving or demolishing buildings: the texts are all from historical documents, including architecture critics like Ada Louise Huxtable, theorists like Bruno Taut, and dictators like Mussolini. The videos are staged in significant historical and modernist buildings of the Yugoslav state and ones designed by Mies van der Rohe. In other videos, modern dancers interact with the architecture, and in some rooms, installations expand on architecture as an expression of statecraft. It makes you have to ask how our governing ideals are reflected in the built environment. Is JP Morgan Chase still demolishing Natalie de Blois’s Union Carbide Building to gain an extra 10 percent of unused floor area available in the zoning envelope? #jasminacibic #modernarchitecture #nationbuilding @dhc_art @cibicjasmina #historiclandmarks #preservation #demolition #unioncarbidebuilding

We’re previously talked about Kansas City, MO surprisingly being a great place to visit, but Wall Street Journal confirmed that this city is one of the top travel destinations for 2019. From the art, to the food, to the historic charm, this city is becoming a great place for tourists to explore. The good news is, since many people still underrate the allure of the city, getting to and exploring this city is still really economically priced! Check out this hidden gem before other people are on to it. The city’s visitor’s bureau has lots of ideas on how to make your trip memorable.

🇫🇷 Notre-Dame📍Paris, France You may not find Quasimodo here, but you will find some magnificent architecture, history, and bells! 🔔 10 mighty bells to be exact. This Parisian icon has been claimed to be a “Gothic masterpiece” when it comes to architectural design and is arguably one of the most famous cathedrals in the world. Being that she’s over 850 years old, we won’t argue with that! If you’re in the area and looking for a good cup of joe, check out Tèlescope- a local cafe with excellent coffee. At least that’s what a Rayka user recommended 😉 ☕️ 📷: @toadsoup_ . . . Have an awesome travel pic you want us to share?
