Garden of Australian Dreams

Another angle on the National Museum of Australia. This photo is taken from the Garden of Australian Dreams - the large courtyard area inside the (kind of) doughnut-shaped building. I like how you can glimpse the lake from in here - the building was designed with its location firmly in mind.

The Garden is full of symbols. Designed by Richard Weller, a landscape architect who was a couple of years ahead of me at the University of NSW, it's been quite a controversial space, but kids especially seem to love it.

Karen, I love this fun and funky art sculpture! It's red and wonderful!

Very modern courtyard, enhanced by the shadowy skeletons of those winter bare trees - Canberra seems to have the contrast of ultra-modern architecture and extremely classic architecture.
