A Look Inside Confederation Hall

Confederation Hall is the axis point of Centre Block, with corridors leading off to the Commons, the Senate, and this one, the Hall of Honour, which leads to the Library of Parliament. The arches and sculpted elements of this space and its upper arcades is a joy to see. Christmas decorations are added throughout, and at this point in January have probably been taken down.

  3. My comments may be a little monotonous, but this is a nice series of that impressive building again.
    Especially that long corridor in your first shot is beautiful.

  11. I love vaulted ceilings, it's an amazing design, with all created out of stone, and the weight distributed down to the ground...certainly a feeling of soaring emotions.
