Does Architecture Have Sex?

By February 4, 2013

Follow me on:

Yes, of course, some architects are male and some are female. But what of the buildings? Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey (Ayasofya) Does a Victorian cottage, dolled up in gingerbread, seem female? Is a rough-hewn stone castle male? How would you describe the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey?

The questions might strike you as a bit absurd, but many serious architecture scholars are looking closely at the relationship between architecture and human anatomy and human sexuality. Join us for an Architecture and Sex photo tour, then cast your vote for the sexiest buildings.

Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey is one of the world's most beautiful buildings, and was a finalist in the campaign to select New World Wonders. Is it male or female?
