Architecture used to be the staple of The Worst of Perth, but personalities (if you can call Howard Sattler a personality) and politics seem to have been dominant recently. So let’s get back to our roots. Don’t let anyone tell you that Western Australian architecture doesn’t have vision and flair, or that it doesn’t have the courage to dream and to innovate. Frankly I’m sick of these Gaudi and Gehry imitators clogging the city with their organic forms, their decon pomo and their exotic materials like this building in Bayswater. This sort of artifice just gives me the shits.
