Great building!

But far too many photos to make this a good thread. You should select the twenty best ones.

omg, thank you so much for that tour. If a building is only about a superficial image then it can be captured in just a few images... but this building seems to have so many facets that what you provide here is exactly what is needed. Gorgeous building... just a pity about the total lack of panache in Ritchie's earlier additions.
