US Embassy Buildings around the World

Can anyone post pictures of US Embassies from around the world? I just thought it would be neat to see all of the different buildings and I can't seem to find a good collection o fimages online. Any input?

American Embassy, London - Currently the largest US embassy in the world. Baghdad's new embassy, upon completion, will be larger


American Embassy, Ottawa - Two different sides, one modern, one classic

Some of them are horrible and at the same time some of them are awesome like the one in Canberra and Rome.

I'm surprised the Aussie one is so understated! It's like a big house...

I agree it looks almost like a fort.
Like this one in Istanbul:

Given the heightened security profile of many US government buildings at home and abroad, I am reluctant to take pictures of these institutions when so many police are patrolling nearby.

US Embassy in Athens, Greece (work of famous german architect Walter Gropius).

Unfortunately the fotos I found are old and in black and white, although they somehow fit with the bauhaus style of the building!

Below is a drawing of the new extension currently being built behind the old embassy.

@hkskyline: I took a photo of the Israeli embassy here once...after that I decided never to take pictures of any embassies again....

This is a photo I took 2 1/2 years ago of the US embassy. There is a huge fence around it now.



Soon they will move to a place outside downtown, as their current location in the middle of downtown is too dangerous both for them and their neighbours, and makes traffic in the area difficult

The new embassy

US embassy in Vienna



The roof in large:


Sorry for not finding better pics...


@Qwert. I am sure, the Viennese US embassador looks by at the Bratislava one just for the coffee brake and returns right afterwards back to his working place in Vienna, or vice versa
I mean with this distance between both towns...
How long does it take by car? 3/4 hour? But only because the street link is a desaster....

I saw the Norweigian one, it's quite nice, and it's really close to the royal palace. The new one looks more regal though.
