Washington DC: White House – South Portico

The White House has served as the executive residence and principal workplace of every President of the United States of America since John Adams. At various times in its history, it has been called the "President’s Palace," the "President’s House," and the "Executive Mansion." President Theodore Roosevelt officially gave the White House its current name in 1901–a reference to the 570 gallons of white paint covering its exterior. Originally built between 1792 and 1800, and expanded over the years, today the White Houses consists of three major parts: The East Wing; the West Wing, housing the offices of the President and senior staff, the Cabinet Room, the Situation Room, the Press Briefing Room, and the Roosevelt Room; and the Executive Residence.

Following the Act of Congress in December 1790 declaring current day Washington D.C. as the new seat of the federal government, President George Washington and city planner Pierre L’Enfant chose the site for a new presidential mansion–1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Irish-born architect James Hoban’s design of white-painted Aquia sandstone in the late Georgian style was selected from a competition with eight other entries. Construction began on October 13, 1792, with Washington overseeing the laying of the cornerstone. Initial construction took place over a period of eight years, at a reported cost of 2,371.83, largely using slave and immigrant labor.

Second President of the United States John Adams became the first chief executive to take residence on November 1, 1800, while it was still unfinished. In 1801, Thomas Jefferson and architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe expanded the residence, creating the East and West Colonnades, concealing the domestic operations of laundry, a stable and storage. It was President Jefferson who first opened the house for tours, and it has has remained open to the public ever since.

In 1814, during the War of 1812, the mansion was set ablaze by British troops, destroying the interior and charring much of the exterior walls. Reconstruction began almost immediately and President James Monroe moved back in by October 1817. Construction continued with the addition of the South Portico in 1824 and the North in 1829. In 1835, running water and central heating were installed. In 1848, gaslight was installed. Covered pavilions and then large greenhouses for growing flowers and vegetables were constructed on either side of the mansion. Victorian ornamentation and decor were added from the 1870s to the 1890s. Electric lights supplemented gaslights in 1891, and the first electric elevator was added in 1898.

In 1902, Theodore Roosevelt began extensive renovations. To address the overcrowding in the executive mansion, he also built a new one-story office structure, connected to the Residence Jefferson’s west colannade and giving rise to the West Wing. Roosevelt also built an early-one-story East Wing as a formal guest entrance and removed the Victorian ornamentation and restored the mansion to the federal style with Georgian touches.

In 1909, William Howard Taft remodeled the interior of the West Wing, creating the Oval Office. In 1927, a new roof and third floor were added to Residence. A Christmas Eve electrical fire in 1929 significantly damaged the West Wing, which Herbert Hoover had the building remodeled without making significant changes. In 1934, Franklin Roosevelt added a second floor to the West Wing and moved the Oval Office to the southeast corner. He also added a swimming pool and gymnasium in the gallery (later replaced by Richard Nixon’s bowling alley). The present East Wing was expanded in the 1940’s, creating additional office space, balancing the enlarged West Wing, and covering the construction of the underground air-raid bunker known as the Presidential Emergency Operations Center.

In 2007, the White House was ranked #2 on the AIA 150 America’s Favorite Architecture list.

Panathinaiko Stadium

Image by nrares
The Panathinaiko or Panathenaic Stadium (also known as the Kallimarmaron, i.e. the "beautifully marbled") in Athens is the only major stadium in the world built fully of white marble (from Mount Penteli). It should not be confused with the Panathinaikos football pitch (officially called the Apostolos Nikolaidis stadium) at Alexandras Avenue.
In ancient times it was used to host the athletic portion of the Panathenaic Games in honour of the Goddess Athena. During classical times the stadium had wooden seating. It was remade in marble by the archon Lycurgus in 329 BC and was enlarged and renovated by Herodes Atticus in 140 AD, to a seated capacity of 50,000. The remnants of the ancient structure were excavated and refurbished, with funds provided by Evangelos Zappas for the revival of the Olympic Games.[1] Evangelos Zappas sponsored Olympic Games that were held there in 1870 and 1875.[1] The stadium was refurbished a second time in 1895 for the 1896 Summer Olympics, with completion funding provided by the Greek benefactor George Averoff (whose marble statue now stands at the entrance), based on designs by architects Anastasios Metaxas and Ernst Ziller. The stadium was built long before dimensions for athletics venues were standardized and its track and layout follow the ancient hairpin-like model. It can seat about 80,000 spectators on 50 rows of marble steps.

It is located in downtown Athens, east of the National Gardens and the Zappeion Exhibition Hall, west of the Pankrati residential district and between the twin pine-covered hills of Ardettos and Agra. Up to the 1950s, the Ilissos River (now covered by, and flowing underneath, Vasileos Konstantinou Avenue) ran in front of the stadium’s entrance, and the spring of Kallirrhoe, the sanctuary of Pankrates (a local hero) and the Cynosarges public gymnasium were nearby.
The Fokianos sports facility lies across Vasileos Konstantinou Avenue, and adjacent to it are located the Athens tennis club, the Ethnikos athletics track, the Federation swimming pool, the remnants of the Temple of Olympian Zeus, and Hadrian’s Gate. Until the late 19th century and the containment of the Ilissos riverbed, the area was reedy and often flooded, and was called the "Vatrahonisi" (Frog Island).

In more recent years this stadium has been often used to honour the homecoming of victorious Greek athletes, most notably the Greek national football team after its victory at the 2004 European Football Championship and also the opening ceremony of the World Athletics Championships in 1997, on a concept by composer Vangelis Papathanasiou.
The Panathenaic Stadium commemorative coin

In the 2004 Olympic Games, the Panathinaiko Stadium hosted the archery competition, and the finish of the Marathon. The stadium was featured on all of the Summer Olympic medals introduced in the 2004 Games, and on the medals awarded at the Summer Olympics in Beijing.

Waste Water (Sewage) Treatment Facility

Image by Marjorie Lipan
The roof of the facility is 69 feet above the Hudson River and also above viewing level from the West Side Highway even when riding in a bus! The North River Wastewater (sewage) Treatment Plant is the base for 28 acres of the Riverbank State Park (NYC info on historical sign), which is on its roof. According to Wikipedia the facility "processes 125 million gallons of wastewater every day during dry weather, and it is designed to handle up to 340 million gallons a day when the weather is wet."
Architects for the project were Abel Bainnson Butz LLC (of interest is the aerial view and a drawing of the plant under the park) The construction went as deep as 230 feet below river level.
Good views of the waste water treatment plant and the park by the Bridge and Tunnel Club.
