Kind of like what you would get if you combined shuffling a deck of cards and a camshaft, after the King of Hearts had a pulmonary edema.  




The postmodern Metropolitan Fire Brigade Burnley Complex was designed by Spower Architects and                                                              completed in 2008.

Snaking it's way over Columbus Drive the stainless steel leviathan that is the BP Pedestrian Bridge was designed by architect Frank Gehry [link]. The bridge opened in 2004. Somewhat reminiscent of the Webb Bridge in Melbourne designed by Denton Corker Marshall only the sides have far more potential, as a sweet slippery dip.

Gehry's Copper Phase. Much like Picasso's blue period it was tentative at best but required to progress as an artist.  Google has pretty large glass these days...

The ornamental nature of this building was a solid boding for his later work although prefabbed concrete and steel I beams don't quite have the same visual impact as molded stainless steel and titanium...

Sometimes that which was not designed to be aesthetically pleasing can just turn out that way in the purest form following function kind of way. Case in point some hulking scraps of steel otherwise mistaken for electrical poles / towers presumably designed and construced by the SEC back in the day.

The Melbourne Star Observation Wheel [link] was built by Sanoyas Rides Corperation and designed by a  consortium of structural engineering firms, led by ARUP [link] and located in the docklands precinct of Melbourne. The Melbourne Star has a long and interesting history, even before it opened for business (2009), then closed for business (2009), then opened again (2013), then temporary halted operation (2013) then unhalted operation 15 minutes later (2013), then closed again (2014) and  now reopened (2014). It looked for a while there, like it was heading in the same direction as the Springfield monorail, only a larger than life donut didn't save it.  


                                      Irrespective of all this, it sure does look pretty lit up at night.

Well at least these red steps don't get shut up and hosed down late at night to prevent an enviable flood of homeless people from finding a safe place to sleep at the end of the night, like they do with the TKTS steps [link] in Times square in NYC.

The distinctive red structure of the red stairs is located on the Southbank side of the Yarra river in Melbourne was designed by Marcus O'Reilly Architects [link] and built in 2007.
