Photo Diary of a San Diego Designer in Europe: Arches of Lugano

by rebecca elisabeth design
Arches are a striking design element in any architecture style. Whether supported by Doric, Ionic,  or Corinthian columns in traditional or ‘Glam’ settings, or built as an opening into a wall in Tuscan interiors, or as dramatically elongated room separators in Craftsman architecture,  they add a graceful focal point and can create rhythm in a space through repetition. Below are some stunning exterior examples I saw during my travels to Lugano.
Main Entry: arch
Pronunciation: \ˈärch\
Function: noun
Definition: typically curved structural member spanning an opening and serving as a support (as for the wall or other weight above the opening)
