AccidentallyWesAnderson/Instagram

Το σκηνοθέτη, σεναριογράφο, παραγωγό και ηθοποιό Wes Anderson, είναι πιθανό να τον έχετε ακουστά. Αν γνωρίζετε και λίγα περισσότερα για εκείνον, θα ξέρετε ότι ξεχωρίζει για την πολύ συγκεκριμένη του αισθητική που συμπεριλαμβάνει παστέλ χρώματα, γεωμετρικές προσόψεις και μια υπερστυλιζαρισμένη συμμετρία σε όλα.

Αυτός ο άνθρωπος ήταν η αφορμή για να ξεκινήσει στο Reddit ένα thread στο οποίο οι χρήστες μοιράζονταν φωτογραφίες από πραγματικές τοποθεσίες στον κόσμο που ταιριάζουν στα κριτήρια του Anderson και θα μπορούσαν άνετα να αποτελούν σκηνικά για τις ταινίες του. 

Ο Wally Koval που αυτοπροσδιορίζεται ως «φαν του Anderson» και έχει πάθος για την αρχιτεκτονική και τα ταξίδια, σκέφτηκε πως θα ήταν πολύ ενδιαφέρον να φέρει αυτή την ιδέα στο instagram. Έτσι, δημιούργησε το λογαριασμό «AccidentallyWesAnderson», στον οποίο όχι μόνο ανεβάζει τοπία εξαιρετικής συμμετρίας και ομορφιάς, αλλά παρέχει και πληροφορίες για την κάθε τοποθεσία που κοινοποιεί. 

Το αποτέλεσμα είναι πραγματικά εξαιρετικό:  

_________________________ Central Fire Station | Singapore | c. 1908 • • The Central Fire Station is the oldest existing fire station in Singapore, and is located at Hill Street in the Museum Planning Area. The building currently houses the Civil Defence Heritage Gallery which is the official museum of the Singapore Civil Defence Force • • The idea for a professional Fire Brigade was conceived after a major fire took place in 1855. It was 14 years before a volunteer fire service was started and 36 years before Singapore's first proper fire station — Central Fire Station — was built • • In 1905, planning for Central Fire Station began under the supervision of the Fire Brigade superintendent, Montague Pett. The station was completed in 1909 at a cost of S$64,000 • • At the time, the Station had four portable water pumps which was a huge improvement over what existed before. Superintendent Pett fought for improved working conditions and initiated fire safety measures in public buildings. Standards of operations rose to a professional level and the degree of fire-related damage fell significantly • • The fire Brigade became so invaluable that during the Japanese Occupation, the Japanese retained British firemen in their jobs, who were thus spared incarceration • • The Central Fire Station became a national monument on December 18th 1998 and remains in use today • • Know more?

#AccidentalWesAnderson Tramway Car | Lisbon, Portugal | c. 1873 • • The Lisbon tramway network (Portuguese: Rede de eléctricos de Lisboa) serves the municipality of Lisbon, Portugal. In operation since 1873, it presently comprises five urban lines • • The first tramway in Lisbon entered service on 17 November 1873, as a horsecar line. On 30 August 1901, Lisbon's first electric tramway commenced operations. Within a year, all of the city's tramways had been converted to electric traction • • Until 1959, the network of lines was further developed, and in that year it reached its greatest extent. At that time, there was a total of 27 tram lines in Lisbon, of which six operated as circle lines • • The construction of the Lisbon Metro and the expansion of the bus system began the slow decline of the network • • The five remaining lines operate in the southern centre and west of the city only. Aside from the obvious tourist attraction, those lines are still very important because sections of the city's topography can only be crossed by small trams • • Tram 15 also connects the entire western riverfront of the city to the centre and allows a better link for passengers with the bus system towards an area that still is not served by the metro • • Although reports prepared by both the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and the Verkehrsbetriebe Zürich concluded that the network should be retained and even extended, the process of decline continued until 1997, with the closing of the Alto de São João branch and the Arco Cego depot • • In an apparent reversal of policy, the mayor of Lisbon, Fernando Medina, announced that tram 24 would be restored to service in 2017 saying that it was a mistake to reduce the city's network of electric trams and that work would be undertaken to reconstruct it • • Know more?

#AccidentalWesAnderson Hellenic Parliament | Athens, Greece | c. 1843 • >Now back to our regularly scheduled programming< • • The Hellenic Parliament or “Old Royal Palace” (Greek: Παλαιά Ανάκτορα) is the first royal palace of modern Greece, completed in 1843. It has housed the Hellenic Parliament since 1934. The Old Palace is situated at the heart of modern Athens, facing onto Syntagma Square • • The palace was designed by Bavarian architect Friedrich von Gärtner for King Otto of Greece and his wife, Queen Amalia, with funds donated by Otto's father, King Ludwig I of Bavaria • • Construction work started in 1836 and was completed in 1843. As it served originally as a palace for the Greek monarchs for about a century, it is sometimes still referred to as the "Old Palace" • • After suffering fire damage in 1909, it entered a long period of renovation. During renovations the King and his family moved to the Crown Prince's Palace, from then on known as the "New Palace", one block to the East • • In 1924, a referendum abolished the monarchy. The building was then used for many different purposes—housing a variety of government and public services in the 1920s, functioning as a makeshift hospital during World War II, a refugee shelter for Greek refugees from Asia Minor in 1922, a museum with the personal effects of King George I (now part of the collection of the National Historical Museum), and other uses • • In November 1929 the government decided that the building would permanently house Parliament. After more extensive renovations, the Senate convened in the "Old Palace" on 2 August 1934. Although the monarchy was restored that same year, the building has housed Parliament ever since • • Know more?
