I don't mind the South African or French embassies. The US embassy looks like a fortress and seems totally cut off from the city (or it did when I last saw it). The Indonesian embassy looks like it should be in a suburban office park and the UK embassy looks like an ugly office building (which I guess is more or less what it actually is ).monkeyronin said:Yeah, most of the smaller country's embassies look good, seeing as there in nice old houses.. all the large ones look like prisons and factories >_>
It's literally a fortress. It brings all the paranoia and fear that the US admin seems to embrace and plunks it right down in the middle of Ottawa. I doesn't belong here... particularly in such a prominent spot downtown. If they wanted it to be such a cold war bunker, they should have hidden the ugly bitch elsewhere. But judge for yourself.Nouvellecosse said:What do u mean?
