Reply To: Office Building, Dawson Street
I have to say, i really liked this building when i saw it myself. I particularly like the colours and shapes used in the structure and even the way it sits comfortably with the large railings to the front. I noticed when i was in the Netherlands last year that many of their very contemporary buildings used different coulors and materials to great effect – i think it lends buildings a more organic, less bulky and more interesting appearence – if that makes sense! i.e. i don;t see why very modern buildings more often then not seem to comprise of one colour, material, and are very boxy/ bulky. I suppose Le Courbousier style modernist – nice, but not all the time. Is think the type of (modern)architecture i like, and i think this building is, is what Shane O’ Toole refered to a ‘slow modern’.
