Hello from Venice! Today's adventure is brought to us by Antonio Da Ponte who designed the existing Rialto bridge and the Palazzo Ducale, both located here in sunny (maybe? who knows, let's hope!) Venice!
This week's Lovely Lister is a special one. Michael Arad won the World Trade Center Site Memorial Competition in 2004. His creation will be seen by victims' families this weekend at a special opening ceremony memorializing the 10th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Oh hey guys! Let's try something new! Every once in a while let's have a little profile of someone who makes the places we live interesting. Let's call it "Lovely Lister" and let's start with renowned architect Frank Gehry!

Close to my heart, being a Seattleite, is his design for our beloved eyesore/maste
Hello from Paris! Okay so I'm not really writing from Paris, I'm way too busy wandering around and taking in the wines, I mean sites! So I'm here from the past to talk to you about Richard Rogers who designed the Pompidou Centre in Paris! Chances are I'm at the Pompidou this very minute! Amazing! I'm having so much fun!
