塔熊The most famous attraction in St. Louis is the iconic building. The arch is 600 feet high and 192 meters high. It can be seen from a long distance. It is said that it cost more than 2 billion US dollars to come close to feel the science and magnificence of the building. You can take a cable car to the top to overlook the city in the direction of the old court. You can cross the Mississippi River on the north side bridge. This is Illinois. Look at the arch on the bridge or on the opposite platform.
塔熊The St. Louis Zoo is on the edge of Forest Park, next to the St. Louis Art Museum. The zoo is free. It is known as the best zoo in the United States. It is really good. The animals you see are very healthy and well raised. Compared with other urban zoos, it feels that the zoo is richer in herbivores such as antelopes and many endangered species. Polar bears and Madison penguins and giant tortoises are good. It should be the favorite of children in this city, and many parents take their children.
塔熊The history of the United States is relatively short, and historical and cultural buildings, especially churches, are a bit inferior to Europe. However, the beauty of the architecture and interior decoration of this church in St. Louis is shocking. It is the most beautiful church ever seen in the United States. The interior mosaic decoration is said to be made by labor for many years, beautiful!

Kansas City, Missouri, is an exercise in evolution. Describing the architectural team’s approach, project designer Elvis Achelpohl says it was important to express the materiality of the buildings while maintaining the “hidden, industrial, overgrown” aesthetic of the area. To complement exposed brick, concrete, and heavy timber throughout, a central courtyard features native plantings and is flanked by existing murals created by street artists over the decades. This light-touch approach is also apparent in the way the project addressed the site’s alleys.
In response to California’s housing crisis, organizations such as the Skid Row Housing Trust — a charity that offers 2,000 units in over 25 buildings across Los Angeles — have teamed up with architects to serve populations in need. Flor 401 Lofts in Los Angeles is one such project. Designed by Konig Eizenberg Architecture, the residential project houses and provides services for the homeless, veterans, low-income families and individuals with special needs. Two concerns behind the Lofts’ design were achieving high environmental standards and creating a living space promoting wellbeing and community.
Famed Iowa artist, Grant Wood, who lived from 1892-1942, is the man for whom this amazing attraction is named.
Best known for his paintings which depicted American Gothic themes, Wood’s largest and most popular paintings are on display at the Iowa State University Parks Library.
Several walls of the library proudly display Wood’s murals, many in the “When Tillage Begins” foyer.
Wood’s work primarily depicts agrarian-themed art, regional in nature, that reveals Iowan people doing the things they naturally do.
For instance, Wood’s murals show farmhands hard at work, veterinarians tending to animals, civil engineers in their zone, and other Iowan people and industries.
Wood’s work is blue-collar and relatable.
As such, anyone can happily enjoy and appreciate Grant Wood Murals.
The unique opportunity to see Wood’s work up close and personal in a university setting rather than at a museum is a testament to its relatability.
Best of all, visitors are welcome to tour the library and Wood’s Murals free of charge.
Address: Iowa State University, 701 Morrill Road, Ames, IA, United States

Kansas is a U.S. state in the Midwestern United States. Its capital is Topeka and its largest city is Wichita. Kansas is bordered by Nebraska to the north; Missouri to the east; Oklahoma to the south; and Colorado to the west. Kansas is named after the Kansas River, which in turn was named after the Kansa Native Americans who lived along its banks. The tribe's name (natively kką:ze) is often said to mean "people of the (south) wind" although this was probably not the term's original meaning. For thousands of years, what is now Kansas was home to numerous and diverse Native American tribes. Tribes in the eastern part of the state generally lived in villages along the river valleys. Tribes in the western part of the state were semi-nomadic and hunted large herds of bison.
