After rounding up 26 architectural sights worth considering for your 2016 travel plans last week, Curbed has compiled the second half of our companion piece to The New York Times’s “52 Place to Go in 2016″ feature. For the final part of our architectural addendum, we scouted out grandiose palaces, modern buildings, and historic sites worth seeing if you end up at one of more of the year’s buzzed-about travel destinations.
