Walking around you get to see so much more, all the wonderful old buildings I love this architecture so much.
The first I would like to show you is St Andrews Church and the sky and clouds looked ominous and not long after we got caught in a shower of rain. As you can see the Saint Andrews Cross, The Saltire, flag of Scotland is set in the lead light glass windows
The High Court is a lovely old building and the interesting feature of this, is a Prussian Immigrant Anton Teutenberg decorated the building with gargoyles and they are a glorious example of Gothic grotesque. Though common on churches and cathedrals around Europe they are rarely seen in the Antipodes.
Formerly known as the old Arts building the clock tower was designed by Roy Alston Lippincott.
The clock tower helped define the University's architectural spirit combining traditional elements with local decorative motifs, flax flowers, ponga fronds and Kaka can be found in the stone detailing.
It is also known as The Wedding Cake
The old Auckland Club is a nice old building overgrown with Ivy and often think this looks a little spooky
Lastly I like the lines of this building and the soft muted coloursI hope you have enjoyed seeing a little of the architecture around the older parts of the City.
Thanks for the kind visits to my blog and I look forward to coming over to visit you.
Wishing you a happy week
