Notable buildings by district

by Giampaolo Agosta

Here is a list of notable places in Specularum sorted by district. The buildings come mostly from existing sources (thanks to LoZompatore's map).
The idea is to put links here to the actual descriptions, once we have them.

Note that I don't have Of Nests and Nations. If someone has it, and can post descriptions of the various buildings, that would be useful.
Also, if you have write-ups or even just ideas on any of these buildings, or new one, post them (and I'll put a reference link).

As promised, here is the Master list of buildings in Specularum, and the associated map (nothing fancy, just the K:KoA map with a grid superimposed to allow easy location of each building).

There are already more than 150 buildings listed, mostly from the Gazetteer, K:KoA, the Specularum Series, B6 Veiled Society and Of Nests and Nations.
Sources are generally marked, when absent the source is generally AllanP's district map, or some discussion in the old buildings thread here.
