The Danes are taking the world by storm with their unique take on modern architecture. We are constantly impressed with their ability to blend principles of modern design with a strong focus on sustainability. Here are three architects in particular whose work we admire.Tel AvivParis TwilightEarly morning at the Hudson Hot Air Affair, Hudson WI.

There is a beautiful Beach Bar near this place - love to sit there and enjoy the natural spectacle :)The Lightner Museum occupies three floors of the former Hotel Alcazar, commissioned by Henry M. Flagler to appeal to wealthy tourists who traveled there on his railroad, and built in 1887 in the Spanish Renaissance style. It was designed by architects Carrère and Hastings, who also designed the Ponce de León Hotel across the street (now part of Flagler College). Both buildings are notable as being among the earliest examples of poured concrete buildings in the world. These architects later designed the New York Public Library and the U.S. Senate office building.
