Knox Walkway

Knox College at U of Toronto is u-shaped and this covered walkway (cloister) crosses from one arm of the u to the other creating two quadrangles on either side. I will show you one of them tomorrow. When you enter the door at the far end you are in the hallway in yesterday's post.

This is the "Gateway to Learning"? I'll take it anytime. And what a great place to sit and study or meditate.

Funny how the idea of a cloister persists even in today's modern and even highly secular universities.

It reminds me a lot of Oxford but, it sounds like it was built in the same way.

I imagine it looks even more atmospheric in the dark with those lanterns on!

Gothic works so well with academic buildings. Lovely. (And now I have caught up with the past two weeks . . . )
