The National Museum of Australia in Canberra, as well as being a treasure trove of fascinating exhibits, is a building of striking modern architecture.

This section of the facade facing Lake Burley Griffin looks like an abstract painting with its geometric designs and contrasting colours.

The exterior of the building is covered in anodised aluminium panels. Many of the panels include words written in braille and other decorative devices. Among the messages are “mate” and “she’ll be right”. Also included were such controversial words and phrases as “sorry” and “forgive us our genocide”. These more controversial messages have been obscured with silver discs being attached to the surface making the braille illegible. (Wikipedia)
