Perry Lakes Stadium

This is Perry Lakes stadium in Floreat, design for the commonwealth games held here in 1962. It is an important piece of our history, and a great piece of modernist architecture. It is however, being demolished and making way for progress. sigh. Although this new plan has merits(the stadium is an obvious white elephant, is in a terrible state of disrepair,and the design is unsuitable for our climate etc), it is still a sad loss.  I am unsure of the architect apart from PWD. Possibly william Green. If you know, tell me! Such beautiful details, and is a great place to explore, the details are wonderful. Fenestration arrangement, finishes, light fittings, stairs etc etc. Its just awesome. Goodbye perry lakes. you will be missed!
