Tulips And Curves

A low level shot alongside the tulips takes in the space between two Museum of History wings, with Parliament Hill on the far side of the Ottawa River.


Here we have a view of the curatorial wing with the tulips. Cardinal, a Canadian First Nations architect who lives in the area, employs the curved motif in his architecture, an influence of his cultural background. American readers may recognize his style in the National Museum of the American Indian, also his work.


These views look back toward the entrance of the exhibit wing.

  7. I guess tulip beds have to be curved to go along with the curves of the art center.
