Aerial Photo: The Arizona State Capitol

This is the Arizona State Capitol complex.  The original Capitol is under the low copper dome.  The Senate and House of Representative buildings were added to the right, in front of the Capitol. Behind the Capitol on the left is a 9-story tower that houses executive branch agencies, with the Governor's Office on the 9th floor.

My husband complains about how the buildings with "mid-20th century charm, or lack thereof" dwarf the old, historic Capitol building.dow

This week we have photos of the people of Guatemala posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

You post saved me the trouble of commenting about the 1970-s-era buildings the surround and obscure the original capitol.

The concrete facades of the buildings that surround the capitol look like they were inspired by The Guns of Navaronne.

That copper dome is a good landmark.
