Architecture x 12: buildings we love

Posted on by Lauren Moss

This week marks the century’s last sequential date on December 12, 2012, and given the numerical significance, we thought we'd take the opportunity to share a dozen of our favorite architectural photos...

So, below are 12 picks for 12/12/12, hand-selected from MYD's photographic archives- all are from our own travels and architectural adventures, and several have been featured in MYD's 'Buildings We Love' series.
