The old Shot Tower and new Glass Cone at Melbourne Central shopping centre. The Coops Shot Tower was built in 1890 and was incorporated into the development of the new shopping complex, which was completed in 1990. It is now the feature of the central court, with a huge glass and steel cone to highlight it. I have always found the contrast between the two styles of architecture intriguing. It’s something i have wanted to photograph for a very long time.
