Sherlock Holmes - 221B Baker Street / The Reichenbach Falls

221B Baker Street is the London address of the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes, created by author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In the United Kingdom, postal addresses with a number followed by a letter may indicate a separate address within a larger, often residential building. Baker Street in Holmes' time was a high-class residential district, and Holmes' apartment was probably part of a Georgian terrace.
At the time the Holmes stories were published, addresses in Baker Street did not go as high as 221. Baker Street was later extended, and in 1932 the Abbey National Building Society moved into premises at 219–229 Baker Street. For many years, Abbey National employed a full-time secretary to answer mail addressed to Sherlock Holmes. In 1990, a blue plaque signifying 221B Baker Street was installed at the Sherlock Holmes Museum, situated elsewhere on the same block, and there followed a 15-year dispute between Abbey National and the Holmes Museum for the right to receive mail addressed to 221B Baker Street. Since the closure of Abbey House in 2005, ownership of the address by the Holmes Museum has not been challenged, despite its location between 237 and 241 Baker Street.

BIG - The Wave, St. Petersburg Pier

As one of three shortlisted proposals for the St. Petersburg Pier International Design Competition, the Wave tries to connect the water and the city of Petersburg by emphasizing the possibility of achieving unity through physical contact. Its undulating form creates a narrative that merges the pier structure with the entire bay area. BIG’s project is divided into three parts: Tributary Park, Wave Walk and the Wave. The first phase of construction will include The Wave and Wave Walk. Tributary Park will be realized in the second phase. Source: Evolo

Walter Gropius - The Dessau Bauhaus

Sivasparch channel on YouTube has a set of 23 great half an hour documentaries on the most famous and significant architectural pieces. Great work for providing this stuff.


Staatliches Bauhaus commonly known simply as Bauhaus, was a school in Germany that combined crafts and the fine arts, and was famous for the approach to design that it publicized and taught. It operated from 1919 to 1933. At that time the German term Bauhaus, literally "house of construction" stood for "School of Building".

Pavillon-Arsenal, Paris

Paris, Guided Tour #00 - Introduction by Pavillon-Arsenal

Created in 1988 the Pavillon de l’Arsenal is the centre for information, documentation and exhibition for urban planning and architecture of Paris. It is a unique place, where information concerning urban development and architectural realisations in Paris is available to everyone.

The main activities of the Pavillon de l’Arsenal are to exhibit Parisian architecture and urban-planning; to give visitors the most accurate documentation possible; to publish reference books on topics affecting the day-to-day life of Parisians and to provide a forum for the individuals and authorities involved in shaping the city.

The Pavillon de l’Arsenal aims to allow a large public to understand the evolution of Paris and its projects. In order to preserve the balance of the Parisian cityscape, today’s planners must use an urbanism centred on proximity issues involving dialogue and concerted actions.

The main hall of the Pavillon de l’Arsenal presents three types of exhibition.
On the ground floor, the permanent exhibition « Paris a guided Tour; the city, past and present » explains on 800 sqm the architecture of the city and shows how Paris was built over the centuries as well as its actual and future projects on various scales, from the Parisian metropolis, through the city, the neighbourhood, to the street.

The 1st floor welcomes on 600 sqm three main temporary exhibitions a year, centred on a particular theme. The thematic approach is diverse: the architecture of the concrete, housing in Paris, the Paris of Haussmann, the Paris of private homes, or more recently the 454 projects for Paris 2012. Since it’s opening the Pavillon de l’Arsenal has presented more than forty exhibitions to the public.

Topical galleries, exhibitions dedicated to French and international architecture are organised on the two galleries situated on the second floor.

In addition to this, the Pavillon de l’Arsenal proposes to the public a documentation centre, a photographic library, a bookshop-boutique, a newspaper bar and a video library.


Pavillon de l'Arsenal also has Dailymotion page with more then 30 short movies on the development and architecture of Paris


From the plaster model of Paris built on a 1/2000 scale in the 1990s to the digital model enabling visitors to truly discover the area.

Google Street View Bicycle Ride

This is called an invention! Since the arrival of Street View a number of people have had the idea of connecting exercise bikes to computers to create virtual bike rides. Instructables show you how you can hack your own exercise bike so that it controls Google Maps Street View.
