I love the Canadian Supreme Court for its strange uniqueness.

Must be the first and only building where the combination of Art Deco and Canadian Chateau Style is that obvious. Geil!

And the Edifice Price Tower in the city of Quebec?...



An art deco skyscraper from 1928 with a Chateau-style roof on top, which is older than the Supreme Court.

Benonie: Yeah, it follows the same pattern, but still it's not as strict beyond the roof as the Supreme Court is.

Btw, what's that building to the right in the above photo?

I don't know. Looks like a gouvernement building. Maybe Canadian citizens know more about it?

Wow. The U.S. Supreme Court building is in so many ways so much more stylish, ornate, and beautiful than the Canadian one; not to mention imposing when you are standing right in front of it.

Both are nice, but I prefer the US one. It is more intimidating, powerful, and shows the strong Western cultural roots of the country. It says "don't **** with me". Though I don't always agree with what happens behind its walls, I love the building.

Dammit. I really like both. But I guess I'd have to choose America's building since I love Greek-style pillars.
