Went in to the city for the first time in a few weeks yesterday, unusual for me.. damn knee :) I was really keen to see the new City of Perth Library.. the last time I passed it was in the finishing off stages. Officially opened on the 1st of March the state of the art building is a photographers dream! Sitting on Hay Street and Cathedral Square three down from the Town Hall below..
From the front and below to the side one of the lushest green walls I think I've ever seen..
There are seven levels to the library and here below looking down to level four the children's story telling space.. judging by the number of parked prams the story telling is tres popular.. so many things these days to attract young families into the city. There is a central shaft that goes all the way up through to the seventh level and the terrace...
Looking from the back you can see that for all it's seven levels the actual footprint of the library is not all that large, brilliant use of space.. I'll be showing you a bit more over the next few days.. reflections, views from the terrace, murals.. it's fabulous! Happy Easter weekend, please take care and stay safe
