Leederville Tafe

This is a small building down a side road at the Leederville Tafe. To be honest, I have no idea what this building is, and unfortunately  I have no information on it. This building is so beautiful, one of the strongest, crispest and finely executed early modernist pieces I know of. In the manner of Dudok, it has very strong geometry and bold forms, with  brilliant entry statement; a flowing concrete canopy that stretches across the long front and curves onto the forward projecting volume, tying the 2 forms together. Strong rhythm and fenestration control all add to make this such a strong building. Great colour with the brickwork and window frames as well. Excellent.
