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.
