Um, India? Is my knowledge of world history that bad?

Top post.

Great post.
There's some pretty creative stuff there; this one looks almost like a ziggurat.
The 20s were a more creative period in the USSR with regard to poster art, architecture and so on. It's a great pity that most Soviet buildings would end up looking like this.

I love the 1983-Sega-Games-Vector font at the top of the pages.

But that has nothing to do with the topic.

Goddamn that's a good find. I love alternate designs for monuments, I've been looking for a book or site that contained at least some of the other submissions for the Vietnam memorial for years now.

Great stuff. I really like the descriptions that accompany some of them - I wish all of them had the artist's statement or vision included.
