Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors #11

A bit closer to home, this building is located on the campus of California State University, Channel Islands where my husband teaches.


Typical Southern California mission architecture with institutional windows.

Oh, it's beautiful! Having grown up in the Midwest, this looks to me like it belongs in New Mexico. So I guess Southern California makes sense :)
I love the bright white against the red - really lovely! Thanks for sharing, and for playing along in WWDD!

By the way, I never thanked you properly - your post last week brought more participants than ever before to my little meme. Thanks so much for your enthusiasm!

This looks so pretty. And I see that the windows still open! (so many now don't, what with A/C)

What would it look like without institutional windows?

Classic architecture (of what a New Englander thinks of southwest), even if it is faux stucco. A red tile roof is great, no buildings up here have that either...the feeling of classic mission style is all over the public building. I like it!

Great photo! I love this new series although i dont think i could see enough windows and doors (or be brave enough to stand and photograph them) for me to join in!

Mission-style architecture is one of my faves. It reminds me of being in college because Mills College has a large building in the same style.

I like the symmetry and the touches of red. Was that part of the old mental hospital?? I remember when that campus first got going...seems like another lifetime to me now.
