The Madrassa of Al-Nasir Muhammad is a madrassa and mausoleum located in the Bayn al-Qasrayn region of Cairo, Egypt. It was built in the name of the Mamluk sultan Al-Nasir Muhammad ibn Qalawun, but its construction began in 1296 under the reign of Sultan Al-Adil Kitbugha, who was sultan in between Al-Nasir Muhammad’s first and seconds reigns. When Al-Nasir Muhammad returned to the throne in 1299 he oversaw its construction until its completion in 1303. The Islamic historian Al-Nuwayri records that Al-Adil Kitbugha built the mausoleum along with the prayer iwan, and Al-Nasir Muhammad completed the construction of the building and added the minaret. Also, the Islamic historian Al-Maqrizi reports that Al-Adil Kitbugha oversaw construction of the building up to the top of the inscription band, and Al-Nasir Muhammad carried out the rest of its construction.
Stockholm subway T-Centralen station. The architecture itself is equally striking. The T-Centralen station resembles a blue and white cavern, with walls of sprayed concrete made to imitate rock face rather than covering up the shape of the tunnel. Station designed by Per Olof Ultvedt in 1975.
Traveling on a city’s subway system is never expected to be an exciting experience. But this could not be farther from the truth in the Swedish capital Stockholm, where artists have transformed the city’s subway into a gigantic kaleidoscopic art exhibition. Stadion station – this one is cave-like and has vivid blue color with rainbow paint.
“Last train from Inferno” – Stockholm has one of the most beautiful metro system in the world. Several stations were decorated by artists and this one is cave-like and has vivid colours. Solna Centrum – the most fascinating metro station. 🙂
