I don't have time to dig out my photos this week though.One place to look for buildings that may inspire steampunk thoughts is the Open House project. A number of cities around the world have a day or weekend to showcase interesting architecture to the public, from historical to modern. That's how I got to look through the Town Hall a couple of years ago.

Quote from: Dr. Nikola on May 16, 2012, 05:08:55 PMI'd like to nominate the Eliphalet Nott Memorial, at my alma mater, Union College, in Schenectady, NY as a prime example of steamy architecture. Nott was president of the college for 62 years(sic). It's the only 16 sided building in America and is normally called "High Victorian Gothic", with its many unusual details inside and outside, including hundreds of colored glass "illuminators" in the dome which simulate constellations. See, eg., http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~vanepsgenealogy/schenarch.html or the Wiki article athttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nott_Memorial
Quote from: Zeppelin Kapitan Fritz on May 18, 2012, 01:50:26 AM I think the exterior of the Rookery Building in Chicago looks quite steamy. The interior was redone later on by Frank Llyod Wright, it looks decidedly less steamy.
