This is the largest academic library on the University of Western Ontario campus in London, Ontario. Named after Colonel D. B. Weldon, who commanded the London Regiment during WWII. It was opened in 1972, and built in the Brutalist style. These poured concrete buildings offered a relatively inexpensive solution to the demands for a lot of new climate controlled spaces in the rapidly expanding universities. The interior surfaces of the building are also poured concrete.

This is a good and well fremed view on this building of an original concept. The round forms of the corners give some style. The light gives good details. Funny that the color of the t-shirts matches the one of the awning.

Very unusual style of building, quite a harsh design, but I agree that the round turrets at the corner do add a nice element of design and interest, making it look like some sort of poured concrete fairytale castle!
Again, you got such beautiful light for this, and the two guys in cowboy hats are a very nice addition.
Thanks as always
