This is a wonderful shot of the new Civic Offices with the contrast in lighting of the City Hall and Savings Bank in the background

I had been impressed with the new Civic Offices and that whole area is now starting to look really good. Let’s hope the Elysian will look as good when it’s completed.

I’m actually a little surprised by the building. It has a lot of characteristics that I detest about modern architecture – cuboid, metal ‘n’ glass, relatively featureless and embellishment-free.

But the stone (marble?) cladding adds a nice texture, and some subtle touches in and around the windows do add some features to catch the eye.

I have to say, the lighting in that shot looks a lot more subtle than anytime I’ve been by it – it’s normally bright green or pink!
