Very nice building and architecture, with well-maintained lawn in front of the building. Visited this place during summer break and it was empty. I'm sure during semesters, the lawn will be full of students lounging around while reading and hanging out with their friends.

While looking at the UWA campus with dsughter and wife ,found this pretty old building with spectacular architecture and views. The place is meant to have speaking assembly, graduation ceremony and concerts. The adjacent pool enhances the beauty of the building.
