I am excited to announce my first experiENCE of 2011. Many of you have seen this building, its form is strange and from the exterior, it stands as a rather unique building against the city’s surrounding sea of victorians. All thoughts and opinions (of the exterior) aside, the interior is stunning. We will start the tour off with yours truly providing some information about the building – like the architect, the important features, and fun facts. Then I will give you guys time to get creative – capturing your own experience – through sketches, photos, words, etc.
