This is Beatty park leisure centre and Beatty park pool, in north perth. It was constructed in early 60s, for the 1962 Commonwealth games held in perth in that year. It is one of the most intact and important relics from those landmark games. Along with Pery lakes stadium these were the major sporting facilities constructed. They are both quite similiar, and Absolutely amazing examples of perth late 20th century modernism. Some of the other relics from that era, and beatty park are now demolished which is beyond a crying shame. Notably the BP kiosk by howlett. ill post some old photos of that later, such a shame… Anyways this centre was designed WA McI Green( town planner at the time), Milton Boyce(CoP architect) and LH Steenbohm. This trio was responsible for a lot of structures constructed at the time for the games. Theres not much more i can say for the building, its fairly self explanatory. All the modern hallmarks, and great detailing, just a fabulous stadium. Particularly love: the mosiac work, Staircases and red handrail detail, The blue fixed panels in the curtain wall, the typefaces and signage throughout the whole stadium. Those are just the standouts, there are many many more excellent aspects. One point of note however is the staff who graciously let us in to the complex to photograph it. Thankyou, you are the kindest and most accomodating people i have come across. Most buildings i try to photograph, my camera is either confiscated and all pictures deleted(im looking at you Dianella!), told to leave(king edward memorial!) or when my father tried to take pics of midland traino( hte police told him to stop) and many others. And yet a swimming pool let us! that is beyond nice! i am massively impressed. any readers who go there, say thankyou, or at least respect them, as they are the nicest employees ive encontered!
