You can find this building with its intriguingly patterned facade in Düsseldorf on the famous Königsallee. Many tourists go there to have a look at the exclusive shops. We think that the pattern formed by the intersecting lines and the rhythm created by the architectural elements much more interesting...

Cardboard Waste #aninspirationaday #architexture

This is inspirational photo #12 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

We create lots of waste everyday. Some of it can by recycled, but a lot of it ends up in the environment polluting the air we breathe and the water we drink. The picture shows cardboard waste ready to be picked up - hopefully to be recycled into something useful again!
