This is the Fremantle Port Authority building by Hobbs Winning and Leighton in about 1963. They are the architects responsible for a large percentage of Fremantles port buildings and other important building sin the port town in the 60s to 70s. This is a wonderful excercise in post war international style, with many delightful features, like the folding concrete canopy roof that stretches on for ever, rigourous fenestration patterning and use of interior courtyards. And the entire worlds supply of mosaics, in one building. I especially love the door handles to the main entrance, and of course the signage. The typeface, kerning and size is just perfect. So austere, and so effective. Old photos, from the state library and taken by Fritz Kos.
