Inspiration & Reference
I just wanted to know if people had any links to good websites for either level design inspiration (photos, paintings, concept art, etc.) or just for architectural reference. We had a thread like this on the old qmap, but we know how much good that does us.

Insane Temple In India ! 
I just "discovered" this totally insane temple in India ! Read the "vault B" and "temple assets" sections on this wikipedia page :

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Padmanabhaswamy_Temple

This temple contains several secret chambers (or "vaults") that hide an extremelly LARGE treasure of gold and jewels, Frank Herbert's Dune style ! The treasure accumulated since several thousands of years.

The India governement openend several of the vaults in 2011 and 2014 for inventory. The known treasure that was discovered at that time has a value estimated at several dozens of BILLIONS of US$ ! (conservative estimation).

The vault B, which is by far the largest one, has never been opened yet, for religious and superstition reasons (fear of a major catastrophy and destruction !). There are large deaons and snakes carved on the only ver large door (fuck this is real Quake we are talking here !).

There are lots of videos on YouTube showing the vault B door. See this one :

What Book Is That? 
 
@Qmaster 
Ahhh. That's The Quake Level Design Handbook by Matt Tagliaferri. I've had it since it came out in '97. Came with a CD with QED and all of the tutorial maps were in QED's proprietary format. I tried to install the editor not too long ago and failed I'll have to try this file from Quaddicted. The wads they used for the levels were god-awful but overall it was a great reference when I started out. The editor was pretty good at the time.

The book on Amazon

There's probably a digital version out there somewhere. 
JA!!

Days Of Future Past 
Nice find, Zwiffle. It's always interesting to see what "futuristic" looked like for designers of the past.

About the Zeit-something, interiors look very cool but the exterior shot makes me wanna barf. 
Tower 
Some Info About That Tower 
Orava Castle, is situated on a high rock above the Orava river in Slovakia. The castle was built in the Kingdom of Hungary in the thirteenth century.
Orava Castle was owned by many aristocrats, county heads and noblemen, protecting important road to Poland and serving as an administrative and military centre for the region

Here's the full castle from a distance

Zhinvali Dam And Reservoir 
Just outside of Tbilisi, Georgia, the European country you'll find the Zhinvali Dam and Reservoir. It was completed in 1986, several years before the fall of the Soviet Union.
At the dam head there is a huge and rather strange monument to celebrate the event which consists of an enormous slab of concrete with figures embossed on it and enormous steel spikes.

#4002 Nice!

#4004 Wow! Very quakey. There's a lot of strikingly odd monuments from the soviet era but I didn't know this one.
