dc.descriptionView as one approaches the court, from the south; This embassy has a prominent site on Pennsylvania Avenue--the only embassy so close to the important national institutions on the Mall and, as the good friend of the United States, the only country so honored. As such, it respects the height requirements and is clad in marble like its neighbors. The building is U-shaped (open to the east) with an entrance on the south side. A wide stairway leads up to a courtyard; a corner rotunda, with 12 metal columns representing the provinces and territories of Canada, echoes the dome and columns on John Russell Pope's National Gallery of Art, directly across Pennsylvania Avenue.
