38 Arts Building at McGill University in Montreal, Canada

Classes at McGill were initially taught in Burnside Place, the former estate of benefactor and founder James McGill. In 1833, the university’s first degree was awarded by the Faculty of Medicine. Ten years later, the Faculty of Arts was added when this Arts Building opened. The grand Palladian style structure designed by John Ostell marked the coming-of-age for McGill University.
