I really like this building, with its amusing columns! hehe


Cheers!
This building was very controversially received, challenging a lot of the more alternative local residents. I remember that there was even graffitti sprayed around the suburb which questioned the abilities of the architect. But it wasnt worded so nicely as I have written it. One of the brief moments when the brisbane public has really voiced opinion on architecture. Its become somewhat of a local landmark now. A landmark either loathed, liked or loved.

I can tell everyone though that there is a malaysian restaurant there called 'Makan House' that makes a great Nasi Lemak.

This building is cool, controversy is a good thing as far as a landmark is concerned, at least people remember it! The worst thing about a landmark is people can't even recall what it is like.

I like the makan house too, their rice dishes seem to be better than the noodle dishes.
