Albuquerque Homeschool Forum / Around town / Architecture Lecture~Antoine Predock
Posted by: 14 (Guest), August 27, 2006, 2:27pm
For anyone fascinated with architecture, Antoine Predock is a local 'celebrity' who has influenced the world with his awe inspiring, breathtaking projects. We first became familiar with him when we moved to Albuquerque 16 years ago and lived in the Predock designed "The Beach Apts", directly across from the ABQ Aquarium and Botanic gardens. I can't imagine living in a more unique and creatively inspiring apartment community. We often had architecture and photography students camped outside of our apartments trying to catch the best light to showcase the beautiful structures.
Predock has also designed a large number of buildings in the Albuquerque area. Below I included just a few of them, so if anyone would like, they can visit these sites and prepare to be impressed.
