I think I have already stated that I am in love with this city. I make no excuses, it’s just awesome.
This first one may not look like much but I had noticed a couple buildings in the village finished like this. Having worked in the construction industry I know that ivy and other creeping vines can be torment and unbelievably destructive to buildings (despite how cool it looks). This building, as well as some others, had a raised mesh on the outside of the building and it looked as though it had been put their to encourage the plants growth but to separate it from potentially destroying the structures integrity. It seemed interesting but I’m not sure about its durability.
The next few are a peek at one of the many galleries in the village. This one had a very industrial feel and, as you may be able to guess by looking at the picture, smelled quite strongly of concrete.
