Hello fellow bloggers,
Last weekend Sydney Living Museums had its annual Open Day. I bought a ticket that allowed access to over 50 Sydney buildings, then visited them camera in hand. I only got to about seven and I wish the time had not been restricted to between 10am to 4 pm. The top of my list was one of the three new towers that dominate the skyline at Barangaroo (below) and it did not disappoint.
Inside Tower two, level 41.
The whole area used to be shipyards where they had container docks.
My new office haha.
Below is the atrium of Macquarie Bank offices, 1 Martin Place. The exterior is heritage listed but the interior is a purple extravaganza.
Modern (above) linked to old (below)
I went on to more buildings until they sort of started to bend in together. This is a view of a new complex at 333 George Street, still being built (below).
Then to 1 Farrer Place with the most iconic views of all. That's my big a$$ reflection in the opposite building. I am not really bigger than The Opera House.
Reflected construction (above)
Lastly, even though the quay side of Sydney and the city centre has to move with the times (I guess) I hope they never forget human scale and that we will always need to see some sky from street level..
Have a happy weekend,
