I hope this school doesn't glow at night.

Dans cette ensemble ou la matière grise est en vacances.

This is so unusual and different from what one sees in the States. Being a former teacher, I'd love to see what it looks like inside ...

Woody said...

Looks like they've modernized the entrance and left much of the building alone. I prefer the original. They should stain or paint the concrete to match the building (easy for me to say!)

Bob Crowe said...

Maybe this entrance is built into a hillside or maybe there were a lot of stairs and an accessible ramp was added. Still, the door hardly invites us inside.

When «Louis» lived in Paris, he found Marie Curie's home - it was on l'Île-Saint-Louis.

LOL at B SQUARED!

That's a very modern doorway from your previous doorway shots. It fits for a high school though.

surprenante cette entrée devant le bâtiment, contrasme entre modernité et ancienneté

I like the 3 tall windows that look like doors to me. Watch out for that first step. LOL MB

Me donne pas très envie d'étudier..le beton et les barrières font plus penser à une prison, et le contraste surprend avec les banales fenêtres à rideaux au-dessus..Ravie de ne plus être lycéenne!

Oh you must come and drive the Chuckanut and on to bellingham and over to Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan---true beauty. MB

A fortress-like entrance!

Halcyon said...

Those windows above look more like apartments. Interesting entrance.

wonderful glimpses into your city.
huckleberries are much like a blueberry, but not as sweet, more wild. ummm

Your last few posts have shown a different side to your beautiful city. Much more industrial and sparse - especially the Grange building and this school entrance. Thanks for posting these, Ciel.

Poor Marie deserves something nicer to look at, I think. I do like the way they did the text, even if I can't read it against the dark doorway.

Also LOL B SQUARED!
