Celebrating archiVIAS first year. Trip to NY-CHI-MIA Octuber 2010

In october 2009 archiVIAS began posting the world's most interesting contemporary architecture, adressed in maps, and linked to architecture critics and further information. 
As a one year anniversary celebration, I have traveled to MIAMI, CHICAGO and NEW YORK to bring you the best and newest of contemporary architecture in these cities.

I used the blog to build my own itinerary and I can tell you it really helped!

I hope you enjoy seeing my impressions captured with the camera as much as I did personally!
