The continued rise of Shedism

There have been more examples of Shedism suggested, Western Australia’s contribution to the built environment, kind of like the architectural version of  a safari suit. The still incomplete Perth Arena is still getting critical acclaim as seen by Herb , whereas Jaidyn Jaxxon documented Centerpoint Midland, already a craphole, but now somehow made worse with some kind of Shedist revival being thrust upon it. JJ suggests that Shedism is perhaps the mean rather than the nadir of architecture. Perhaps sales of miniorb bear this out. He also snapped a nice Baileys sign while there.

Other examples of Shedism suggested have been the Albany Entertainment Centre, and Fremantle Maritime Museum, although they are part of the splinter Boat Shedism movement. And Fremantle does look good, but that may be my photography skills.

    I think the Freo Maritime building is quite lovely. Especially when viewed from the entrance to the harbour on water.

  2. I don’t know why it is , but the Great Eastern Highway flyover has given that Midlandian aspirational colossus , the Gaint Golfer, a new lease of life.

    The half-round corrugated iron huts that adorned the Claremont immigration dept had more architectural appeal than the crushed beer can Arena on Wellington St. Bury it while sinking the railway please!

    Wow. I’ve never seen the Albany Entertainment centre before. It looks like a building getting raped by another building.

    What is the connection with safari suits? Seriously if I was an architect and designed a building that was the architectural equivalent of the safari suit I’d be stoked.

    FringeWorld is using the old Treasury Buildings as a set of venues – get along and have a nosy, catch some fun shows.

    But why does this blurb from the FringeWorld website make my blood run cold (okay, tepid):

    “FRINGE WORLD has been granted a once only use of The Treasury before the buildings and surrounding precinct are permanently transformed.

    A world-class redevelopment gets rolling in 2012 post FRINGE WORLD involving the State Government, the City of Perth, the Public Trustee, Perth’s Anglican diocese and developers FJM, Mirvac and CBUS Property.

    Enjoy the charms of this grande old dame of WA history one last time before her total makeover commences.”

        I think it would revolve around the use of the phrase: “world-class development”.

        Also, the number of names involved in the development makes me suspect the existence of subcommitteessss…. which are always a step in the right direction when it comes to “world-class development”.

        The idea of a “total makeover” on one of the few remaining interesting secular buildings in the CBD is also a bit gutting…
