hellz yeah. i adore this place so bad. one of the top buildings in perth no doubt!1963-64, FINN, VAN MENS, MAIDMENT. one of a proposed series of govt buildings on this site. raised on a plinth. such strong vorizontal banding nad the most rewarding free floating corner details.also rich undercroft area, punctuated by a strict order of columns. just really, really good, restrained and richly detailed modernism. it doenst get much better, or exquisitely executed than this. perfection. and it includes everything, the handrails, slab details, paving, parking everything, considered.
