At The Old State, we love design, we love architecture, we love to see things which were created from passion and through the sheer force of the imagination. You know that feeling you get when you see something and you immediately get the sense that some brilliant human being, or many of them, created it straight out of their heart and soul? Well, sit back and treat yourself to a momentary escape and take a visual walk through some of our favorite places on earth! And where else can you travel around the entire planet for free in 5 minutes?

Whether it be on a back road in the south of France or smack dab in the middle of New York City, you never know around which corner someone, or some thing, is going to take your breath away. Ahhh, now that's Heaven on earth.

Once you browse through the pictures we carefully collected below, you will know one thing for sure. And that is you've treated yourself by stopping to smell the architectural roses.

Life is short....ENJOY!
