People have an instinctive interest in and urge to create architecture in cities. This is evident in a large number of photographs. In contrast to the idyllic countryside, the modern city is no longer a quiet and serene home, but is always full of challenges, desires and temptations, and adventurers see it as a paradise on earth. This materialism is not only reflected in the spiritual realm, but also extensively influences the architecture and landscape of the city. It is said that many urban buildings are shaped somewhat like genitalia, or that it is the genitalia that inspires the designers and creates the landscape of urban architecture. Of course, it can also be said that this design concept foreshadows reproduction and birth.
Nanjing Zifeng Tower is a Nanjing landmark and one of the tallest buildings in the city. So people seem to be no stranger to her existence. This design style cannot be said to be necessarily pleasing to the eye, but it is definitely rich in character. In the picture formed by the Purple Peak Building and the surrounding buildings, it is clear how distinguished her presence is.
This picture was taken in backlight, and you can see the trees on the shore of Xuanwu Lake submerged in a shadow. The loss of detail in the image increases the representation of the architecture to a certain extent, creating visual tension.
