Funky future.....

There is a lot of construction going on in Perth just now so there was no shortage of material for this months theme day. This amazingly futuristic looking construction on Wellington Street is going to be the Perth Arena, Perth's biggest indoor entertainment and sports facility. If you click this link you will see what it will look like when it's completed, quite fantastic (Perth Arena when complete). It's been in progress for over a year now and it could be at least another at this rate until it is completed. Standing a little way further down Wellington St. is the now boarded and closed up Entertainment Centre, I have many happy memories of watching The Wildcats basketball team play home games there and also concerts, hopefully the new arena will be able to live up to it's memory.

  4. I hope it'll be worth it too Dianne, as far as I was concerned there was nothing wrong with the old Entertainment Centre.

    Thanks Jim.

    Did you click the link Cloudia, it really is a bizarre image.

    I'm with you Ann I like my buildings not to look like something that's been dropped out of space!

    But I must give it that Randy, it is interesting!

  9. I couldn't tell if the building was being constructed or de-constructed. A good theme choice.

  13. Hi Kaori, if you click on the link you'll see what it will look like when completed, when that might be I have no idea. I will re-visit and take another shot then.

  14. It is massive looking. My first thought about its use was either a Art Museum or warehouse, but an arena is better. Cheers.

  19. I can't say I'm particularly fond of what I see but perhaps when it's completed... ?
