Grease Trap

Had a look at the recent City Beach development, and I was blown away by the kerning on the grease trap signage. Absolutely magnificent! Can there be a better and more picturesquely positioned grease trap? Right on the beach? Can the Costa Smerelda have a better sited grease trap sign? With a better kerned space between R and A? No way. Oh the buildings? There’s one nice angle on the surf club, (as shown), but the rest is bog standard Perth Shedism. Particularly the restaurant blocks. And the multitude of laser cut surfboards are an embarrassing and unnecessary mistake.

    Will there ever be a unit on aesthetics in architect courses?

      No need ! Journos are in charge of archi aesthetics from now on .

      And you know why : architecture is just a branch of financialised property development now and architecture a tool for successful sales .

      And as Fairfax and Murdoch gradually divest themselves of publishing and media , and invest in property development and marketing real estate , it is just good business for them to be in control of what we think about buildings

    That art installation should be placed outside Indiana Teahouse as non-functioning toilet emblematic turds. #Cottesloe #Whatfuckisthisshitroundmyfeet #ohactualshit
