One of the more interesting buildings in the National Capital Region, is Douglas Cardinal’s National Museum of Civilization, across from Parliament in the old Hull part of Gatineau, Quebec.

Cardinal was inspired by the Canadian Shield when he designed this building.

Here we see an overview reflected in a nearby window.

Here is another view of the many curves of the structure.

Some curves are organic in look.

Finally a detail of the Zen Garden on the site.
