Contemporary Architecture

December 11, 2010

Dublin has seen a blossoming of architecture in the past few years. Those intent on wearing us down with negativity could do well to open their eyes and take a walk round towns and cities, photographing the fine new buildings and the beautiful restoration work that has been down on the old.

I spent a few hours meandering through Melbourne’s Southbank earlier in the year and gradually built up a mental picture of the place. It is full of nooks and crannies, atriums, fine shops and restaurants and offers a continuous view of the Yarra River.

Can’t wait to visit again…

Southgate, Melbourne
