Swiss Architecture

In awe, I marveled at the architecture in Switzerland. Below are a few samples for you to see, with description of what I observed.



This is Lucerne, one of the most beautiful cities in Switzerland.  I looked at the architecture and wondered, how is it possible to keep standing erect without cracks and deterioration? This tower is built inside the Reuss River.


What makes the bricks stay in place and keeps the tower from leaning? It is such a mystery to me.


Creating is a gift. When you really stop to think about it, everything starts with a vision, a dream, and followed up with determination, most anything great can happen. Ah ha! Anthony J. D'Angelo was right! "Don't reinvent the wheel, just realign it!






I have traveled from the east to the west, the north to the south in America and have seen many old buildings. In Boston, for example there are many old structures standing close together. I saw the same in Chicago, New York, and other cities too. But why is it, in Switzerland, even though streets are narrow, I can look up and appreciate most any beautiful building?  I'm a firm believer, everyone should have a view. By the same token, every vision needs a view and it starts inside your head. 








How many little girls dreamed of being a Princess and marrying a Price and why do we say, your home is is your castle? Have you ever seen a pot of gold? Are we the dreamers, the builders, or the architects of our imagination? 


How is it possible for a building this old to look so beautiful? As I know it today, the building construction process is long and has so many variables, unknowns, material costs, and endless issues with building codes and zoning in America, I can't help but wonder how wonderful it would be to study historical architecture abroad to learn the secrets of dream makers of long ago.






What is the secret to success? I'm convinced it's all in the details. This has to be a particular skill that makes things last. Built to last! Buildings like this reflect the cultural history of the people who were there since the architect designed the building in the first place. To think, these were new designs, so stunning and beautiful; yet reflects the lifestyle of long ago.  







What does it take to succeed? One must excel. Be inspired. Develop the art of becoming a master. Provide a holistic approach to clients and customers. Possess a comprehensive knowledge of your product. Be natural and strong. Accept challenges. Intrigue others and be yourself. Create meaningful joy that can and will be appreciated for generations to come. This is our heritage. A dream is the reflection of your attitude and how you connect with others. 






These are my thoughts, my photos, my life. What does the Hotel Des Balances mean in English? "Experience pure insBration! Embraced by our ambiances and careful attention to inspire and pamper you, let us reawaken your senses, taste, feel and relax balances style!"

Endre Barath, Jr. - I have been to Bern, Basel, and Geneva too. They are all so lovely and unique. I especially liked the Zytglogge, or as I like to call it, the Clock Tower. I thought it looked more medevial than places in parts of Italy. You must have fond memories of all the places you have been.

Michael Jacobs - Thank you. That was my goal. But I was beginning to think I overwhelmed the readers and was just about to delete this post when you commented. I'll see what happens. I spent a lot of time on this one. People must be busy.
