One40william encore.....!

Last year when I first showed you 'one40william'  it was just newly completed, I shot the back view (below) and showed it in B&W for a bit of drama. When I went into the city last week as I was walking down Murray St. I could see that it looks every bit as impressive from the front and a little more 'friendly' with the blue sky above. I know it's a very big, modern building but somehow it seems to fit in quite well with the older buildings next to and around it. The Perth Subway Station is below with the entrance coming up onto Murray St. in the centre of the city, very handy when you catch the train in from the suburbs. This building has won many awards for it's environmentally friendly design and Aimee's health has definitely improved since moving there.. not sure about her bank balance, being right in amidst all the city shops and with a love of fashion doesn't bode well for her dollars and cents. I hope your week is off to a good start, the weather in Perth is perfect with a week of 25C ahead.....

  8. I like this unusual building. It looks like several different buildings stacked on top of each other in a slightly off kilter way. I love buildings designe like this. They make great architectural interest.

  11. Both shots are impressive, but I prefer the color with the sky reflected in the glass.

  18. This must go on my favorite buildings list! It's magnificent. Such wondrous lines and the way they fight to reach up to the sky! Marvelous!

  19. Looks a bit like a Frank Gehry building but more industrial. Our downtown won't see a building like this anytime soon.

  22. Vous aimez beaucoup les cubes, en Australie. Nous aussi, mais en béton. Seulement en glace, dans notre verre, au moment de l'apéritif. Hmmmm, un bon rosé de Provence, agrémenté de quelques olives aux herbes.... Tu viens?

  25. Great captures of a very distinctive building, Grace.

  26. I like how it butts up against an older structure. I'm a fan of modern architecture but especially when they figure out a way to integrate the old and new
