Menzies Institute, Hobart #2 by 

This is another shot I took this afternoon (11 July 2010) while walking around Hobart, of the Menzies Research Institute building on the corner of Campbell and Liverpool Streets in Hobart, Tasmania.
This is an interesting building that has sparked much discussion in Hobart owiing to its unusual architechture. This shot exaggerates the perspective slightly, but the lines are not straight, nor the corners square. This uilding was designed to leave a lasting impression on the viewer, and love it or hate it, one cannot argue against the fact that it does just that!

    Interesting building, would be very effective to catch it with good clouds reflected in the windows. I’ll have to see if I can look it up while I am down there at the end of this week.

  • That would make a good photo…
    It’s just as interesting from the other side too, kind of L shaped.
    Pretty easy to find, it’s across from the hospital on the edge of the CBD, pretty hard to miss…
    You can see the other side of it from the Brooker HIghway which is the main road into Hobart, just before you reach the big roundabout which marks the end of the highway.

    Thanks, Saturday is going to be my photo day it looks like, I’m meeting slideshooter for a coffee and a few photos.

  • You’ll have a good guide to the photo hotspots of Hobart then!
    We have gone on a few joint photographic missions, and we’ve both learned new spots off each other where great photos can be found…

    WE are going to see the carousel in the Botanic gardens, I hope, weather permitting.

  • Can be quite good thing to photograph…I have about half a roll of film of it, one or two of which might be worthy of posting here…
