Photographer's Note

Palais des Droits de l'Homme on Allee Rene' Cassin, Strasbourg. The modern edifice of the
European Court of Human Rights. Established 1959 and serve the 47 nations of the Council of Europe.
From a distance it looks as two giant vessels on a collission course….
It was designed by the Richard Rogers Partnership and completed in 1995. Not the best beauty of archi.-design, but an interesting edifice.

Location in Strasbourg: 48.598, 7.7752
The picture was taken through a bus window, and grey sky aloft.
