UCLA Campus at Night

Below are a few photos of University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) campus that I shot over several summer evenings this year.

It's a very pretty campus. It is very green, there are several gardens, many sculptures and fountains. The buildings represent a mix of architectural styles, but they all fit well together and are all well-kept. I like the most the buildings that were build in the Romanesque Revival style, which were the first structures built on campus.

The location of the campus is pretty good as well. It is located in the residential area of Westwood, bordered by Beverly Hills, Bel-Air, and Brentwood, just a few miles away from the beaches of Santa Monica. It definitely looks like a great place to study.

Royce Hall, one of the original four buildings of the campus, has become the symbol of UCLA, taking inspiration from Italian Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio, in Milan:

And some buildings in the modern style:
