Because it ain't about the building (excuse my bad English!!). Which is not really fair I guess as I haven't given you a full front on view of Parliament House . Let me explain a little, when it was decided to build Parliament House on the hill overlooking St. Georges Terrace (knocking down the old army barracks for the view of the terrace, which was foiled anyway because they had to leave the Barracks Arch in tact, see a few posts back) an Australia wide competition was held to pick the design, all were ignored and the design went to the Public Works Department!! Well that says it all moi thinks!! Still the pollies have to gather somewhere so this building might be quite fitting after all!! I did rather like the sky though, hope you do too! p.s. I'm sure there will be a lovely image of Parliament House somewhere on Google.
