That sounds awesome.
In a few weeks I should be going on a field trip to Blickling Hall in Norfolk.


So I'm looking forward to that, just look how beautiful it is. Trouble is, it's a few hours coach journey from University(in Lincoln), but apart from that, I'm looking forward to it.

I've spent last week in Amsterdam. It was gorgeous, I fell in love. So many gorgeous historic homes. So many interesting modern designs. Delicious food, great views and scenery. I can't wait to return some day.

Oooh, sounds exotic. I loved it in Amsterdam. The historic architecture was really amazing, so was some of the modern architecture. One of my favourite buildings there was the Palace.

Right here in the US is fine with me.
I prefer the architecture of private residences over public buildings.

Many public buildings, especially in Europe, are of the older, more ornamental architectural styles, which I don't care for at all.
To me, they bespeak old-world oppression, basically. It's not a big deal to build grandiose structures on the backs of what amounts to slave labor or indentured servitude.
The same obviously also applies to castles and palaces. I can appreciate those kinds of buildings in a historical sense, but not in an architectural sense.

The notable exception to this are some of the relatively newer brutalist buildings and monuments, which might seem odd, since the style is often associated with the Soviet era, but that was different kind of oppression, imo.

I think the US still has the most to offer, in regard to various styles of residential architecture.

Edit: By "public buildings" I mostly mean government buildings, not things like banks.
