Photo: Antechamber Dome Rotunda Architecture Legislative Building Winnipeg Manitoba Canada

The antechamber, inside the dome of the Legislative Building in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Built between 1913 and 1920 this is the formal entrance to the Legislative Chamber - a very grand in appearance with Greek and Roman influences of architecture.

The antechamber, which is located at the base of the dome rotunda, a shape that is common in all Canadian Parliament buildings, is officially the formal entrance to the Legislative Chamber of the Manitoba Legislative Building in Winnipeg City. It sits at the head of the grand staircase as well. The curve of the dome is 87 feet above the antechamber, which boasts eight Corinthian (a style of Ancient Greek and Roman architecture) columns surrounding the base of the dome.

A bust of the Greek God Hermes, the God of travelers, can be found between each of the columns, two of which can be seen in the photo. The floor of the elaborate rotunda is made from Tennessee marble and the black lines that can be seen are made from black Vermont and verde antique marble. ... continue below the picture...

... In the four panels that curve up to the top of the dome, three of which can be seen, five gold rosettes are found in each one. The diameter of the circle is 13 feet and on the outside of the dome, standing proud above the city of Winnipeg is the famous Golden Boy statue.

This part of the building was built between the years 1913 and 1920, and the entire structure was built in the School of Beaux-Arts style; a grand tradition that begun and has continued in France. The architects of the building were Frank Worthington Simon and Henry Boddington III.
