A lovely building and what a terrific roof! You surely don't see many of those these days! You had some gorgeous skies as well, JM! Beautiful capture for the day!

I wouldn't have imagined an art centre in this beauty. I love the roof, it reminds me of Burgundy!

Well I have to say that's the first time I've seen a roof so elaborately tiled JM, the finishing touch to a lovely building.

Kay said...

This looks like a lovely spot. Like others, I love the roof. I've not seen one patterned like this before.

I wouldnt like to find a replacement tile for that building should one ever break. This building is art to contain art. Fantastic as usual

It's a beautiful building and so pleasing to hear it's been put to good use.

This is exceptional, JM. When I look at differnt parts of the building, I see different countries' influence on it. You live at a crossroads of cultural influences, and this lovely building reflects that.

How magnificent is the inside??! It must be pretty amazing to protect it with that cool tile roof.

Randy said...

That roof is a piece of art by it's self.

Reminds me of some of the convent buildings we see here.

Francisca said...

A gorgeous art center in need of some flowers.

Jim said...

Love the architecture.

Halcyon said...

That tiled roof is beautiful!

Kate said...

Jack's comment is so insightful. It is an unusual building...very striking. And flowers would be terrific . It needs more landscaping.
