    It's the Supreme Courts Building, Queens Square. McConnel, Smith and Johnson architects. Not sure of the date, 70's one would think.

    There is a brief history on the Supreme Court website and again on the MSJ website:

    Apparently some interesting interior work, purpose designed octagonal court rooms, behind that great facade. Difficult to tell if it's operable? Photos I've tracked down would seem to suggest it is, except they also seem to show the same composition of opened and closed elements.

    This building is currently getting the floor to ceiling window treatment and a new facade. Good reuse I suppose, but I'll miss the old beast.
