Dream or Nightmare

The content of this image could either be an architect's dream or an architect's nightmare, but either way it's a beautiful rendering.

There's often an awkward moment in these dreams-of-exploring-something, when you're not sure whether you feel excited or scared... Piranesi captures these feelings perfectly!

I enjoy the lights and darks, shadow and motion. There's movement and energy- not a static rendering. It speaks of something epic and important.
