A lot of architecture, especially today, seems to have little to no humanity. That’s why I like the friendly architecture group so much.

Nestled in a quiet corner of Reddit, this delightful subgroup has found a way to make architecture feel a little less like a boring lecture and a little more like a neighborly chat over the fence.

With over 20K members (because who’s really counting?), this band of aesthetically curious folks gathers to gawk at the architectural wonders that look like they’d offer you a cup of sugar.

Forget about the stone-cold edifices that dominate the skylines; these buildings are here to be your pals. Whether it’s a house with a window that smiles or a bridge that high-fives you as you drive by, this subreddit is about finding the warm and fuzzy in something that’s usually… well, concrete. I hope you enjoy them, but be warned: these structures may cause your cynical heart to thaw just a little.

These are 50 examples of architecture that go above and beyond to help us all.
