Architecture like a Bird --- Day 250

Walk: Palace of Legion of Honor, San Rafael and Corte Madera shopping
Distance: Maybe a mile

Of all the art, artifacts and structures I saw in today's AOA lecture at the Legion, the National Parliment House in Port Moresby, New Guinea captured my attention.  I think it is elegant, soaring, beautiful following lines and design features that are rooted in New Guinea architectural history but unlike any buildings I personally have seen in the States.  Made me wonder if architects in New Guinea are trained differently than architects here.
