Australian Institute of Management

This is the AIM building, designed in 1987 by Howlett and Bailey. Another great example of mid 80s white worship. Here, a simple cubic form with the barrel vault charging across the building, and punching through the main entry facade creating a strong entry canopy statement. Continues themes developed in the Ceramics tile showroom the year before. Central barrel vault, white compressed sheeting panelled exterior and bold volumetric compostition. Interesting to note that Forbes and Fitz were doing similar work at the same time, just before the two merged and turned into COX. Cox have just completed an extension to this, which is nice to see. Love the sunhoods!
