Happy Valentines Day!

14 Feb

Architecture puns and innuendos have to be some of my favorites, mostly because they were so much fun to create while in school. This year for Valentines Day it seems very fitting that they are being shared to express a love for others as well as a love for the field itself. If you think about it romance is always connected to architecture, especially in the movies.


Why? because in “On the Town” Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra they agree to meet the girls they’re crazy about on the top of the Empire State to start there night out. Sinatra sings an amazing song called  “You’re Awful” while looking through the binoculars on the observatory deck. (Click the title for the YouTube Video).

Sleepless in Seattle, Tom Hanks plays an Architect whose son tries to set him up with Meg Ryan and they meet at the top of the Empire State Building on Valentines Day.

Also King Kong takes the object of his affection to the Top of the Empire State Building (lets just forget the fact that he gets shot at while he does it just for today)

I encourage you to follow #architectvalentines on Twitter today and find that someone you want “Aalto” yourself, and let the romance of design become an inspiration to what the rest of the year has in store.
