European Imports and American Exports (Blog Post Nine)

When I look at things that have influenced American Architecture and Design I look at many of the buildings in D.C. They all love very similar to buildings of Europe.

 With their domes and columns they follow a similar style of design that Europe has been doing for centuries.

New York City

Shanghai, China
The best exported idea from America to the rest of the world when it comes to design has a lot to do with the skyscraper. We started building them in or major cities like New York City and Chicago... and it caught on everywhere else. It was a way to add more more in cities where the land maybe limited, so if you can't build out, you build up.
