Addition

This is the addition that was added to the back of the Alliance Francaise building that I showed you yesterday. Designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects, it was finished last summer and the bottom floor contains a theatre while the upper floors provide more classrooms for the centre. I took this pic in the fall when we still had leaves and green grass!

Lots of light can get through those windows, a very good thing.

Good news - trees are beginning to leaf out (well, a few varieties are).

I like the modern look to it and yet is seems to fit.

Well that was a little unexpected Pat :) Quite a different style to the original house.

I like its style.

This is a really neat design, and what a lovely fall day it was. It's a very pretty view.

Even better than the original!

They left the facade historic, but added this interesting bit around back, eh? I like it, P!

Leaves and green grass will be back soon. I wish we had a whole building for Alliance Fran├žaise where I live.

It looks great! A nice mix of modern and traditional.

Very interesting - and you've got one of my favourite things in the shot as well - a fire hydrant (so different from ours!).
I will post a picture of our Institut Francais at some point so that we can contrast and compare.

I didn't think I was going to like the modern addition, but this one is somewhere between OK and good. I haven't made my mind up about precisely where on that spectrum I land.
