Arch - 42

Arch - there are a lot of different types of arches:

arch-types

I was walking to meet with a contact yesterday morning and the unusual triangular archway of his building caught my eyes. I also have two more traditional round and basket arches to offer. In my area, the most common arch (except for bridges) are as architectural embellishments and decorative brickwork.

That's a nice assortment.
Thanks. I always love visiting my broker - the building his offices are in is so beautiful. The two brick buildings are within a block of each other in one of the older, more 'refined' areas of St Paul.

Those are all very impressive entry ways!
Thanks. I love architecture and fine masonry. I could have walked three blocks and ended up with more than 20 examples of arches used in the home architecture of this area of the city.

Those are all rather beautiful - thank you!
Thanks so much. I had fun finding these to share.

A great selection of arches!
If I would have walked another block or two I could easily have had eight more arches to share. It seems a very prevalent architectural embellishment in our area. I really loved the triangular archway on the way to my appointment. The way the lights shine - it's really quite beautiful in spite of the industrial feel of the building.

An interesting and beautiful collection! Your first image is very interesting to me, as these arch types have quite particular names in English. The translations often aren't easy to find or wrongly given in the regular dictionaries.
Thanks. I had wondered about the different types of arch and thought others might also be interested, so I posted the graphic for everyone's benefit. I'm pleased you found it helpful.

A nice - and educational! - collection:)
Thanks *hugs*
