How sad it is that anyone, ANYONE, could bet their life that any new architecture or development proposed for Perth will be totally shithouse. Will we never reach the situation where we might be able to say “Well that could be good.”? When the Government Architect, (And can two words chill the soul more effectively?) can present seemingly wonderful sounding visions for the city centre, but you know, you know more certainly than a union rep will have yellow teeth and fingers, that the result will be a turd in a bag.
I haven’t seen the plans for Perry Lakes, but I know, as do you, that whatever it is, it will be a piece of shit. The community was widely consulted, but we all know that turd has already met bag. I remember Perry lakes stadium best for ACC (Associated Catholic Colleges) sports meetings during the 1970s, where the call, “Marist are wankers! Clapclap – clap clap clap,” would ring out. I have wonderful memories of a classmate – who it turns out robbed houses during the night, buying cartons – even palettes of Samboy chips to distribute to us at the stadium.
HERB has sent in a few pics, along with a quotes from Alannah McTiernan on approving the project, including, “…while bricks from the original buildings will be crushed and used as road base in the redevelopment…” Perhaps she’s still waiting for the thanks from you ungrateful cunts? Hello? Roadbase! Is this thing working? Here are HERB’s pictures of chopped down trees being rejuvenated by being stuck on steel poles, no doubt with wide community consultation.
