    Very nice. Although when I first saw the picture the new building I would have thought it was some financial institution as it looks all modern and sleek.

    Ok, so I'm trying to imagine--are these two different buildings? Love the mixture of classical and modern architecture!

    that last one looks like a alien space ship hovering..
    I must say I prefer the old, charming building.


  6. Sandy Nawrot Says:

    I agree with Caite, I like the old architecture better. Quite a contract between the two...

    The new one looks like a spaceship has landed on the building. Great photos!

    Thanks, everyone, for your comments!

    The new and old supreme courts are definitely two different buildings. As you can see from the last pic, they preserve the old court (left and right) due to the history and also as one of the attractions.
