Cavernous lobby of Ottawa train station

Cavernous lobby of the new Ottawa train station. Nowhere as grand as the now defunct Ottawa Union Station, this new station resembles and airport and is fairly functional. I had an opportunity to use this station thrice between 2012 and 2015. The station was designed by John B. Parkin & Associates and was built in 1966. It won a Massey Medal for architecture in 1967. In 2000, the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada named the station as one of the top 500 buildings produced in Canada during the last millennium. (Ottawa, Canada, June 2015)
