FACE MELT. this could be the most innovative, expressive and charming use of brickwork i have seen in perth. The sheer repetitiveness, scale, patterning and sun play is overwhelming. It is large. So imposing and brutal. Marshall Clifton 1969. Very similiar in form to the Forbes and Fitz church round the corner. Stained glass work is great, and the stepped up ceiling line, with a broken arch thingo going on. wonderful. the pictures speak for themselves in this case. A wonderful example of highly expressive WA modernism.
