I located this beautiful building at the University of California, Los Angeles. The building was named in honor of Josiah Royce, a California-born philosopher, author, and influential educator from the 1880’s until 1916. The building was designed by the Los Angeles firm Allison & Allison (James Edward Allison, 1870-1955, and his brother David Clark Allison, 1881-1962). The construction started in 1926 and was completed in 1929. Is a brick and tile essay in the Lombard Romanesque style. The exterior of the building is composed of various elements borrowed from various nothern italian sources.

If you want to visit, is located at 340 Royce Drive, Los Angeles, California.

Memories petrified as
Dried branches tangled
Between the threads
Of my past feelings

Graffiti Around the World: Buenos Aires Argentina 2

As I stated in a previous post, street art represents a natural interest for me, since I have been interested in all art manifestations. In fact, one of my favorite activities is visiting museums, but for me you can also find very impressive art on the street because it naturally has a surprising factor: finding art where you never expected to find it.

I started photographing graffiti since two years ago, while traveling, so now I decided to post a photograph of a graffiti on the last Friday of the month, until the end of the year.

I hope you will enjoy the graffiti, as I enjoyed discovering them while I was strolling around.
