John Curtin High School

THis is the John Curtin High School in Fremantle, designed by the Public Works Department in 1943, most likely in charge is Clare. Beautiful example of later art deco, and a nice example for Fremantle. Really strong lines and geometry, with a low and streching manual arts wing, that butts up to the 2 story vertical element, with a lovely canopy linking the 2 masses. Great entry statement, good to see its in a fairly decent state, very nice. Lovely signage as well!

  1. I love this building and it’s graceful lines. Fascinating stories of its wartime history could be told if the walls could talk (I’m working on it!).
