This one by Zaha Hadid. Both complexes (total of 650 homes) were completed in 2013. I mention this because about 90% of the units are empty. I asked several locals why and was told the places are too expensive.
Milan Cathedral, the second largest church in Italy after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, is the third largest church in the world. It took six centuries to build this Gothic wonder and on this visit I learn
something new. Back in 1389, how did they transport all that pink marble over land from a quarry near Lake Mergozzo more than 65 miles away? See next photo.
