European Vacation Aaron Britt We've been all over the world in our search for the best architecture and design, and we've reported on scores of fantastic cities along the way. From uncovering the surprising modern design in Bordeaux, France, to the fjordside splendor of Oslo, we never miss a chance to poke about Europe's design capitals. Here are five of our favorite visits from over the years. If you've been since we have, by all means let us know in the comment section what we should see when we head back. Oslo, Norway Last time we were in town, Snøhetta's Norwegian National Opera House and Ballet was still the most arresting spot in the city. Athens, Greece Though Athenians may be pondering a Grexit, don't leave the Euro Zone without a visit to the cradle of the column. Bordeaux, France Wine isn't the only thing this large city in southern France has to recommend it. The Law Courts by architect Richard Rogers deserve an appellation controlee all their own. Brussels, Belgium We've seen loads of Belgian houses in our pages lately. Check out the design scene from which they sprout. Paris, France The City of Lights may be best known for the Gothic splendor or Notre Dame, but furniture designer Erwan Bouroullec gives us the city's modern side.
