Although the Candian Supreme Court looks good, in a lot of shots it looks like it is standing all by itself and away from the rest of Ottowa, while the US Supreme Court seems to be with rest of Washington.

I must agree. Our cousins to the south have the better building.

Can't win 'em all!

Washington D.C. is meant to represent that Strong democraic tradition from ancient Greece and Rome. This building to me fully represents that.\
America fully represents that for 231 years !

Both beutifull and they serve there country well!

Canadian.

Based on that I have been given a very exclusive tour there, and participated in a mock trial. The layout is beautiful, though the front could be a little more intimidating. I love how clear the front looks though in terms of open space, and the surrounding area is amazing.

the us one, mhee, overplayed. all their buildings look alike.

perhaps if you posted in a manner more suited to an adult than a 2nd grader, I would not ignore your post.

I've always liked the Canadian building. The US one is nice, but there's a lot of buildings like that around it.
