As you may have heard, I have move to a new home. This time marks the return of Shutterchitecture, in a new land full of new buildings. The first featured piece of architecture is the Parliament Buildings of British Columbia in Canada.

The Parliament Buildings of the Province of British Columbia is situated in Victoria, the capital city in the island of Vancouver. This neo-baroque building was designed by Frances Rattenbury and was formally opened in 1898. Atop the central dome is the gold-plated statue of Captain George Vancouver.
