I like the way you composed this picture showing an amazing contrast in those two buildings.

A photo full of contrasts. Nice one :)

Absolutely fantastic composition! It all looks surprisingly good together!

AB said...

Incredible! Unless the perspective is fooling me, they kept only the white façade and built a massive glass office building to stick out of its thin shell.

Peter said...

Well, this kind of compromise is I guess better than just to replace with our present "glass boxes". I suppose that only the walls remain.

ultra modern and cool

Jacob said...

Quite dramatic, JM! Actually, I like the older building better. What's the sculpture in front all about?

That is the chicken said...

Layers of styles of architecture...what is the black granite (metal) thing? Looks like two interesting streets.

Per Stromsjo said...

That is some contrast to contemplate. Makes me wonder if the recent architecture is robust enough to withstand any future seismic activity. Hopefully Mother Nature won't do any such testing and we'll never find out.

That's nice architecture! Not too high with a dash of old charm. Like it!

Hilda said...

They actually look good together!

Small City Scenes said...

henny said...

If my eyes tell me right, they built a modern building right on the old building? That's impressive.
