State Capitol, Tallahassee Photos

The State Capitol occupies a 23-story tower, part of a complex which supplanted the old domed structure in 1977. The complex was designed by Edward Durell Stone, who is also noted for the Kennedy Arts Center in Washington, DC. This new modern Capitol displays some notable artwork.
