Attention to detail

An architectural quiz for sharp-eyed readers.

We like to touch.

As sensual human beings, we gravitate toward objects that are rich in detail. Warm woods. Cool stone. Even if such architectural features are beyond our fingertips, we can visually caress their contours and take pleasure in the intricacy of their design.

Can you identify the buildings whose details we’ve highlighted in the slideshow on this page? Try to identify them; the answers start on the next page.

And next time you’re out and about, take note of your own favorite architectural details, and post them on CL’s facebook page!
