This is the Perth Building Society offices in barrack street perth, by Hobbs Winning and Leighton. circa 1966. Apart from it being a very nice office building, exploiting the horizontal striations to maximum effect and fine negative relief marble work, and the horizontal members ‘floating’in fornt of the glazed panels, i managed to get my hands on this original perspective drawing, ammonia print from the firm. It is soo excellent. It has that magical quality to it, lacking in todays practice. Sorry about the image quality, but i dont have a drum scanner etc, so its the best i could do.
