Please Stop

Should I continue with the devastation? Deco Michelides Tobacco Factory, aka Peters Ice Cream, aka suit hire. The Colour H captured another crappy decision. Is our every building stalked by some demented cocos or cotton palm bent on destruction?

    40 years on, and the area STILL looks like a brothel

    yet another case of demolition by neglect.


    • It looked better when they were rolling great southern grown tobacco there.

      And speaking of meh. I have given Perth Stadium (in the background) time. It still looks cheap, shitty and an embarrassing attempt to look Melbourne. Awful building. Haven’t seen the inside yet. How does something so expensive look so cheap?

        I’ve come to hate the Arena less as it approached completion. The interior is good, and the acoustics and seating were pretty good when I saw Dolly Parton there. Security is still overzealous in the way Perth always is, and trying to funnel 10,000 people down 2 escalators is perhaps a bit optimistic.

        I think this is pretty much what a stadium looks like these days. Once the area around it is done, it probably won’t look so incongruous.

        So, there, I’ve said it. Good riddance to the old deco building, and much love for new Perth Shedism.
