Cityscape of Providence

Here starts the series of posts about my visit to Providence, Rhode Island. There's just so much material to share that I decided to do it in several posts.

This June, my sister Alina and I had a wonderful opportunity to stay in Providence, Rhode Island, for a month. We took two summer courses (book design and magazine design) at Rhode Island School of Design. It was an invaluable experience and one that I'll never forget.

My sister and I stayed in RISD's dormitories. We got a flat that was on the 10th floor! The rooms were very spacious and had huge windows (this building used to be a bank). The view from the windows was amazing, especially in the evenings and at night. I used to stand near the window a lot and watch how the sky changes its colors within minutes or marvel at all the lights of the buildings and streets.

For my first post I selected images that show the cityscape of Providence. Let this be the introduction to this city :)!




We used to take walks along the canal in the evenings

RISD's campus as seen through our windows. We 
studied in the Design Center (the tall white building)

The building we lived in (the library 
was conveniently located on the 
first floor of the same building)
