French Cultural Centre

This Victorian building on Spadina Rd in the Annex neighbourhood houses the Alliance Francaise which is both a cultural centre and French language school that has been in this location since 1987. The building has classrooms as well as a gallery, and a new theatre that has been recently added (towards the right in this pic). I will show you a pic of the theatre addition tomorrow.

It has a fine shape to it. I bet there are lots of secret places among the floors.

I like how the building style seems to make the most of the street corner position. A fascinating piece of architecture.

That's a lovely building. The 'signage' is very minimal but effective.

EG CameraGirl said...

I like the architecture. It has so much more charm than most building built today.

Perfect for Alliance Francais Pat, I think ours is in a slightly more modern building but a lovely older area.
