I have a funny fascination for incongruous architecture. The metal of the bridge, the traditional brick buildings and the modern scape together is really funky.


The engineer in me is just fascinated by these photos - especially of the Ascent. What a stunning building.

Oooohhhh, I'm adding this to my places-to-go list!


What a great building. I love how it mirrors the river.


Those are great photos.

Wow! That's an amazing building. I would love to see it up close. :) Thanks for sharing.


I do a visitation swap for my ex to see the kids, right near Cincinnati and I never knew. I'm totally taking them there next time. My nine year-old ranks bridges only behind trains and candy.


That reminds me a little of the Clifton Suspension Bridge here in Bristol


This really was just one of those accidental discoveries. We set out that dreary morning with the intention of simply walking over to Kentucky, maybe getting some breakfast and taking a few photos of the bridge (I'm fascinated by bridges and love taking photos of them).
Once I spotted the Ascent, we had to walk over to check it out.

When I got back home and started going through my photos, I managed to cough up the information about the architect and the building with some Google searches. All too cool to keep to myself :)
