Undercover information!


'
The new i-City Information Booth is up and running and it's so good to see Forrest Place looking ship shape once more. Above, early on Monday morning looking down towards the train station I couldn't help thinking that the new organic shape of the info booth was the perfect foil for the sculpture now fondly (?) known as the Green Cactus or 'the organism' (you might have to enlarge the shot to see it back there).


Above looking up Murray St. The new booth is so much more user-friendly than it's predecessor with seating and an undercover area, much appreciated on a 40C summer day.. and look, it has the seal of approval from the city gulls, I can see that pristine white top is going to need an occasional clean-up :) Have a fab Friday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. only five more sleeps till I head over to Sydney, woohoo!

  1. Please show us ONE scene from Perth that looks a bit seedy - IF you can find such! Your city is giving my city a complex, LOL

  3. The Sydney trip sounds fun. An info booth like this one would work in Sweden as well. Although only for a few months of the year as it doesn't look Winter-proof!

  4. I agree with Cloudia! Perth is beautiful, not a seedy place in sight.

    St. Louis is full of seedy spots.

  5. Gulls can alway use another perch.

  6. It's hard to believe I was in Aus just a year ago. Seems like much longer. I am very jealous of your trip to Sydney. Enjoy!

  7. I checked out the Web page -- interesting! Our visitors center is moving downtown soon. Won't look like this (it will be a storefront), but could make for a photo opportunity one of these days.

  9. There is a nice contrast with the older building too, Grace! That could be a nice summer info booth here.

  11. I love the shape of the booth but, I really, really love those two photos of the street scene. Perth really is a beautiful city, isn't it?

  12. Oh lol, they are going to have a recurring cleaning problem! :-)

    It looks wonderful from above, like an alcove. Does it look as good from the ground?

  14. You must be getting excited to see your granddaughter Grace! After I enlarged the pics, I noticed the gull on the far right appears to be standing on one foot. I love it when birds do that!

  15. Aside from the proper tourist information centre in Melbourne there is also a booth in a busy place, but some lessons could be really learnt from yours.

  17. The gulls must think that's quite a good perch.

  18. visiting after a long hiatus. The sea gulls have the best view on top of the information centre.

  19. It is going to take some time for me to get used to it. My first reaction was that it looked like a broken egg. Maybe that is what the gulls thought.

  20. I must try & get into Perth soon & see all the new stuff!

  21. Looks like the pigeons approve.

  22. I don't recall ever seeing a purpose built information centre in any town in the UK. Usually they are in some historic building which has no other purpose these days. I rather like this one.

  23. Both of the new additions look very cool. I especially like the shadow cast by the green cactus.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like the shape/design and the fact that it is easy to get to.
    Only 5 more days. I am happy for you and your trip to Sydney!:)

  25. It is a very nice building, I like the shape of it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ah, good to know where it is now - will we need a new map, are there so many changes? Cool design and yes, fits to the cactus, Grace. Can´t wait to be back!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ha, the first place I'll go when I visit Perth :-)
    Thanks, Grace!
