Looks like a government building in France. Presidential palace?

The writer Gertrude Stein once asked, which camera Henri Cartier Bresson had used for some photos that she admired. He replied: "By the way, my dear, I recently read your latest book which I liked exceptionally well. Now could you tell me please what kind of typewriter did you use?"

Building's name please, and the architect's name would be a nice bonus.

Hello Brian,

Nice photo of what appears to be a relatively recent addition to a 50 or 70 year old building.

The brickwork looks Dutch & the sky looks like we are not too far from some body of water.

Best Regards,

Michael

Well Michael your surmises are not too far out. The original building is a lot older though and is not Dutch, it is a recent addition, and it is quite close to a body of water.

Hello Brian,

Altho the brickwork is a style that has been used for a long time. The mortar appears to be of a type that was invented sometime in the middle 19th Century. I guessed the date of the older part of the building from the style of the trim on the older part of the structure. It is a style that was popular following the Second World War. Altho it was also used during the second half of the 19th & in the early 20th Century.

Pehaps Belgium or Denmark?

Best Regards,

Michael

The original part of the building dates from early 19th C, now of course refurbished.
Next clue - UK.

Hello Brian,

Thanks for the clue — Is this the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, Kensington Garden, London?

Cheers,
Alexander

It is indeed Alexander - well done, over to you!

I took this before the opening - must go back to see it after its completion. Perhaps when I go shoot this year's Serpentine Gallery sometime after 26 June

Thanks again, Brian — very nice picture of the Gallery, actually.

OK, Here comes my proposition. An older buiding, on Kodachrome.
Hope you'll enjoy the search.

Cheers,
Alexander

Could this be in Japan, either Kyoto or Nara?
