Geraldton SGIO

This is the SGIO building in Geraldton, designed in 1985, by Forbes and Fitzhardinge. It is one of a series of buildings Forbes and Fitz did around this time, including the R&I bank in Leederville, that explore large sculptural volumes, crisp, flat surfaces, and overscaled devices. It is an overall very large and commanding building, especially in the way it addresses the site and context, and although bulky,  appears light and dynamic.
