Pierhead building

Pierhead building
Terracotta at its very best on the exterior of the Grade One listed Pierhead Building in Cardiff, built in 1897 for the Bute Docks Company to the design of the English architect William Frame. The terracotta was supplied by Ruabon based brickmakers JC Edwards & Co. It is now a visitor and education centre for the National Assembly

A lot better looking than its modern Senedd neighbour!

beautiful building... not sure whether it counts as Gothic but it certainly has Gothic elements - battlements, gargoyles, so the benefit of the doubt for now!

That's gothic enough for me! ;-)

Such a fine building. What's nice here is that the building has plenty of free space around it and it hasn't got modern buildings adjoining or looming over it.

I've seen it referred to somewhere as "French Gothic".
