The “stair 2” at McMaster University’s De Groote School of Business. Named the Ron Joyce Centre (he of Tim Horton’s donuts), this 4-storey academic building opened in October 2010 housing state of the art classrooms, meeting rooms and lecture rooms and has achieved a LEED Gold standard. This is the bigger picture of my sign posted here.

  2. Oh, WOW indeed! what a terrific reflection capture for the day, Lesley! I love it! An awesome school building indeed — I’d have loved to have gone to school in a building like this! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  3. A structure built to create reflections! Wonderful.

  4. That is not easy to capture light inside a building : well done, my dear…

  5. Very interesting building with the all the glass and stone.

  6. Lovely light and architectural detail — great picture. I’ve been reading a series — set in Quebec that mentions Tim Horton’s — makes me wish I’d stopped into one when we saw them on the East Coast (of the US) on last summer’s road trip. Didn’t realize how famous they are. (Don’t see them in the West or in Florida>)

  7. The diagonals are interesting: those of the stairs are complemented by those in the reflections.

  8. Ooh, I like this modern architecture. And the reflections give you some nice lines, Lesley. The sign is attractive too.

  9. Wow, beautiful reflection shots. Love the architectural detail.

  10. […] A slight distraction from the highway as the reflected sunset glints off the windows of the new McMaster University building. The inside stairwell was posted here […]
