Dom es and Spi res tel l s the story ofthe bui l di ng.I t’s a sym bolofweal th,pol i ti cal stand,and i m pressi on ofstrength. The appearence ofbol dness,the gesture ofreachi ng up towards the sky,revealthe m oral el evelofthe pl ace.

The red m arks the spi res,the bl ue m arks the dom es. As the ci ty grows,skyscrappers wi th dom es and spi res crawl i ng up to the sky,are not uncom on.Yet,bi tby bi t,the ori gi ns ofspi re and dom e are forgotten.Som e ofthe dom es and spi res are so tal lunti lyou onl y real i se i tfrom gogl e m ap.
