The bulbous More London, pictured here framed by the Tower of London, was designed by @fosterandpartners and is home to the Mayor of London. The 45 meter-high glass structure has a reception hall, a café, and visitors can even sit in and watch Chamber debates if one is taking place. (📷: @zobolondon 📍: More London).

Outside of Orange, on your way to Cargo, stop at Montoro Wines’ Cellar Door for a taste of their “Opal Eyes” Sparkling Shiraz or their Pepper Shiraz. The mild climate means a slower and more extended ripening period, so the wines are as complex as the architecture of the building. Initially conceived by @source_architects as a subversion of the typical

Outside of Orange, on your way to Cargo, stop at Montoro Wines’ Cellar Door for a taste of their “Opal Eyes” Sparkling Shiraz or their Pepper Shiraz. The mild climate means a slower and more extended ripening period, so the wines are as complex as the architecture of the building. Initially conceived by @source_architects as a subversion of the typical "winery in an old shed" model, the contemporary design of the building lends itself to the environment the winery hopes to cultivate — a continuous space that opens to the terrace and wildflower fields beyond, allowing patrons to linger in the cellar the same way wine does on your palate.

This intricate, stone-clad terminal in Antwerp, known as Middenstatie, was constructed between 1895 and 1905 and was designed by both Louis Delacenserie and Clement Van Bogaert. Considered the most exceptional example of railway architecture in Belgium, the eclectic mix of influences has led to ambiguous architectural classification — but that’s what makes the space so special. After you’ve exhausted your neck looking up at the exquisite ceilings, both the Antwerp Zoo and the Diamond district are only a short walk from the station. (📷: @yako_flpr3 📍: Antwerp, Belgium).

Roundhouse Aquarium, located in this red-roofed building at the end of the Manhattan Beach Pier, is a staple on the iconic boulevard. The building is currently going through a $4 million remodel, $1.5 million of which was raised by Skechers CEO Michael Greenberg and the Harrison Greenberg Foundation — he was motivated by the desire to honor his late son, who had a deep love of the ocean and passed away in 2015 while traveling in Thailand. Visit later this year to see the beautiful new facilities when they reopen. (📷: @panvelvet 📍: Manhattan Beach, California).

London’s St Pancras International railway station set against a rather ominous skyscape — but not to worry. If you're looking to escape the city's infamous rainy weather, and perhaps toast to this central London icon's 150th birthday this year, just tuck inside the station for a quick visit to Europe's longest Champagne bar.

Let your inner child run wild at Parque Gulliver, a 70-meter long resting giant with slides, ropes, and stairs abound. Inspired by the famed children's book "Gulliver’s Travels," the Valencian park lets you put your imagination to good use as you navigate the ropes that hold Gulliver down, just the way the Lilliputians did in the book.

Some consider the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library a modern Hogwarts in the middle of Yale. Designed by Gordon Bunshaft and completed in 1963, the building is one of the largest in the world devoted to rare books and manuscripts. Over 80,000 volumes live on its main floor, with an additional million volumes in underground book stacks — think Gringott's underground vaults, but with books and humidity controls.

play_circle_filled Around 45 million travelers per year meander through Terminal 3 of the Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport, likely feeling as if they’re inside of a honeycomb or on the back of a manta ray — both of which were top of mind when Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas mapped out the terminal’s distinct design. The interior was also based on the concept of fluidity, with a strong focus on the idea of movement and the idea of pause. (📷: @veronang 🎥: @javografo 📍: Shenzhen, Guangdong).

This restaurant concept from @alex_nerovnya reflects in a Swiss lake — the sheer size of the windows allows for the building to interact with the sky and the water dreamily. What would you want the kitchen to serve if it were real? (📷: @alex_nerovnya 📍: Switzerland).

"I don't have the time" isn't an excuse for not visiting the top of Seattle's Space Needle, because all you need is a solid 41 seconds to rise 520 feet for those panoramic views of the Emerald City. The tower has always been one of the city’s most popular attractions, and in 2018, it became even more impressive with the addition of the world’s only revolving glass floor, letting onlookers view the city below from right under their feet.

“Standing at a colossal 2,700 feet (800 meters) tall, everything below seemed so tiny and insignificant. This image right here is what made me fall in love with aerial photography, even though I was actually capturing it from a GoPro at the time. Being able to see things from a higher perspective is a truly incredible and humbling experience, and I am extremely honored to be able to share this unique view from the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, with everyone.” (📷: @henry_do 📍: Dubai, United Arab Emirates).

There’s a very significant reason the Stuttgart City Library sits at the center of the town square — the German city wanted a bold way to represent the high priority it places on the power of knowledge. The striking library is nine stories tall, offers a clean, porcelain-like aesthetic, and makes finding your favorite read or a quiet place to study as simple as navigating up and down its stacked staircases.
