Yesterday's photo of the library courtyard shows a nice contemporary use of brick. Just up the street from the library is the Royal Theatre with decorative motifs in brick and an ornate terra cotta (I think) facade. The Royal Theatre was built in 1913 in the Rococo/Renaissance Revival style. It is mainly used for live performances and seats about 1,500. While the building itself is basically a big box, the details are delightful. Below is an example of the sumptuous facade near the roofline.
