    Concurred! Barb, and thanks for the explanation.
    By the way, I adore Mister Micawber's suggestion--A Bird's-eye View from a Red Edifice.
    How do you like it?

    You may be right...but unless you have traveled to China or the USSR you don't know their fascination for the color red. It has a much different connotation than we give it in North America.

    A five story building is not especially tower-like; though from the description of "bird's eye view" it looks like it is well located on the campus.

    Thanks, Naamplao, for the reply again.
    Since you've been Asia for a while, I treasure your opinion. What do you think about the term--A Bird's-eye View from a Crimson Edifice?

    An Edifice is does not thrill me too much.

    but here are some things for you to think about.

    An owl is considered to be a wise bird. Perhaps the building could be considered an owl's nest......just a thought.

    Thanks, Naamplao, for your quick response.

    I concur that an Edifice isn't thrilling enough but it still keeps the image of a tall building.
    On second thought, your first suggestion seems to do the trick well--A Bird's-eye View from the Crimson Tower. In truth, "tower" and 'building" share the same character in our language.
