Worst Architecture/Carpet/interior design
Guest Post by Mazarina
Lovely words and pictures from Mazarina, although pictures always suffer a little out of a word doc for some reason. Now this building has been frequently suggested for The Worst of Perth, but I have to admit that I like it. A lot. It has some interesting angles. Some people have referred to it as KGB headquarters, but I even like the carpet. Mazarina says…What says welcome to the ‘State of Excitement’ better than the cutting edge architecture of East Perth train station? I think the yellow skip bin art installation adds a jaunty touch. Perhaps it’s a clever device to catch employees jumping out of their windows.
Break out the corduroy beanbags because it’s ALWAYS 1975 in the office block at East Perth. I’m guessing this is why all the chairs have been unceremoniously dumped in the passage. Unfortunately my camera does not have smell-o-vision, so I couldn’t capture the full vintage charm of the groovy carpet. And of course too much brown was never enough in the 70s, hence the need to couple the carpet with stylish wood panelling. Yeah baby.
