For something completely different but house related this morning I propose a virtual visit of the Greek Villa Kérylos. Built in the south of France the villa is based on the design of noble houses built in the 2nd century B.C. on the Island of Delos, the Villa Kerylos invites visitors to step right back into Ancient Greece.
I have a new favourite building in centre town. 90 Elgin Street.
These pics do not show what to me is the most arresting of its approaches and this is traveling east on Mackenzie King Bridge towards Albert Street. As you pass south of the National Arts Centre there’s a bit of a curve and suddenly this building is in front of you. I kept thinking of Washington DC as I looked at the building and then it came to there is something that reminds me of the John F. Kennedy Centre for the Performing Arts.
What a beautiful bridge. Click here for details.
The spirit houses of Thailand are a beautiful tradition. Strolling the streets of Thailand it is quite amazing to see these little houses in front of most homes and most office buildings also.
