Photo: Facade Architecture Ontario Legislative Building Toronto Ontario Canada

Details of the facade of the Ontario Legislative Building in Toronto includes faces carved into the stone wall, columns and intricate stonework set all around the arches. The Legislative Building is a fine example of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture.

The Ontario Legislative Building is a recognizable landmark in the city of Toronto. It is also known as the Ontario Provincial Parliament and holds the offices of the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario and the members of the Provincial Parliament.

It was built in what is known as the 'Richardsonian Romanesque' style of architecture, which refers to the architecture of Henry Hobson Richardson who incorporated French, Spanish, and Italian romantic styles in to his work. This includes things like a lot of arches and short columns, both of which can be seen in the facade of the building here.

The whole building, including the facade is made of all Canadian materials, wherever possible, and the bricks on the outside were made by the inmates of the Ontario Central Prison. ... continue below the picture...

The sandstone that is on outside has a pink hue to it, and the building has the nickname 'The Pink Palace', and was given a rustic finish trim for the outside and that includes a number of stone faces and gargoyles, such as the one seen in the photo here.
