The East Perth Train Station was designed by Forbes and Fitzhardinge in 1969. This is one of the best example of large scale public architecture in the state. It is also one of the most polarising buildings here, you either love it, or hate it . This building is one the best examples of brutalism in the state/Australia, along with the Hale Memorial Hall, Deaf School and the Concert Hall. It is an original, and appropriately West Australian structure that demands attention and consideration. It also looks like an aircraft carrier.
