A mesmerizing collection of vivid hues and patterned domes, St. Basil's Cathedral looms at the southern end of the Red Square, one of Russia's most widely-recognized architectural monuments. Originally built between 1555 and 1561 to commemorate the victory of Ivan IV over the Tatars in Kazan, the cathedral was a vision in white stone with gilded domes; the riotous milieu of colors and patterns were not added until the 17th Century. Little is known about the architects of this majestic edifice and for a time legend had it that Ivan IV had the duo blinded to prevent them from replicating the spectacular design. Originally composed of nine chapels, a tenth was added a few years later where the tomb of Saint Basil lies. Although officially named the Cathedral of the Intercession, this historic jewel's more popular moniker derives from this. Today, St. Basil's Cathedral is a museum attracting droves of visitors each year, inspiring awe in all those who lay their eyes upon its rich facade.

Casa Milà es una joya del modernismo construida por Antoni Gaudí entre 1906 y 1910 y declarado patrimonio de la humanidad en 1984. Se dice que es la mayor escultura abstracta que existe, porque parece haber sido modelada por un gran látigo. Gaudí quiso expresar con la fachada "una voluntad romántica y anti clásica que concibe la arquitectura como fenómeno de la naturaleza". No fue valorada ni por la familia Milà, que pagaba las obras, ni por la gente, que la llamaba La Pedrera o La Cantera. Una curiosidad: aunque se derrumbara entera por dentro, la fachada se mantendría intacta porque es portante de la estructura.

Ya sea que la ames o la odies, esta manzana de viviendas monótonas de protección oficial y alejadas del centro fueron transformadas con colores brillantes pensando en la ecología gracias al artista austriaco Friedensreich Hundertwasser en el Tercer Distrito de Viena es ahora una atracción turística como el Hofburg o el Stephansdom. Tras declarar la guerra en la línea recta y prometer pagar la deuda a la naturaleza, Hundertwasser cubrió la fachada con un tablero de ajedrez de colores primarios, añadiendo domos de cebolla y revestimientos de cerámica, y pasto y árboles plantados en los techos. En el interior, los 50 aposentos adquirieron un desconcertante rasgo de pisos terracota ondulados. No te pierdas cerca de ahí el Kunsthaus Wien, otra transformación de Hundertwasser que alberga una colección permanente de su arte.
