The Marquette Building in Saint Louis Missouri is one of the older buildings in Downtown Saint Louis. Opened in 1914 and with the Classical Revival Style of architecture, this building can't be missed unless your blind. The white exterior is eye catching when the sun shines on it. A video will be made on the building in the future.
This Art-Deco building was built in the 1940's and serves as the administration and outdoor arena for the Du Quoin (pronounced Dew-Coin) State Fair Grounds. Currently, the fair grounds no longer houses the state fair but holds what could be called the 2nd Illinois State Fair. The fair Runs from the Last Saturday in August to the First Saturday in September yearly.
Today, I lay out a message of what is to come for Architecture+Design. This blog is meant to showcase new architecture designs and development news in ways that have never been done before. The goal is to inform and engage readers into a open minded discussion about architectural designs and development news. St. Louis is changing, and by informing readers about this change, we can make St. Louis a better place. Our history, Politics and Developments take center stage here. Although not advanced, I will use my resources to make this blog worth while and keep it going until viewers stop viewing it. It is a mission that will be fulfilled.
Thanks for checking out this blog. I will keep everyone posted with new posts every once in a while. And I hope this site will grow in to something much better in the future.

Welcome to this blog. Here you will find information on different forms of Architecture in the World as well as the city of Saint Louis and surrounding areas. I will mainly aim towards older and newer designs to compare the two types and see whats familiar and different. Occasionally, a video I will make will be posted and it will be fun and easy to understand. Thanks for checking out the blog and welcome.
A new design is here! And it is simpler then ever! Easy to find tabs and a new look is what I like, Simplicity. On mobile platforms, the translucent material used on the mobile menu gives a sense of whats beneath otherwise known a depth. I hope everyone enjoys this new look!
