Swan Panorama, Perth- UPDATE

from todays west- one again they got their stupid facts wrong. it wont be taller than central park at all. infact the towers will come in as 4th and 5thtallest unless heights have changed under this new seidler design. anyway-


This pic is focusing on the eastern aspect and ol' man Seidler. Very ironic that this got released today as i just completed a biography on harry fro english.

Well, I'm glad you can tell that from the pics.

I'd still like a much clearer one.

Well I don't know how we can judge - the photo is pretty bad so its hard to tell.

Don't mind Seidler, at least his stuff is interesting and not bland.

Should be good for Perth.

Obviously they mistook the actual height with the number of floors.
The previous heights still stand (Unless they have 4.7m floors.. which they dont)

and they are over near Qv1?

Now not only will Brisbane and Sydney be having a Seidler-thon, Perth will have its own lineup of 3.

If im not mistaken that makes it come in behind sydney? (lol @ how many syd has)


It isnt that bad IMO. Pretty much Seidler lol.

yer thats what i said, it changed my opinion, his architecture maybe a bit boring but its very arty, and thats what it says on his sight, there some quote about art, in german or something.

But that's what a couple of us are saying. Not that we want more pics ATM but just a better scan of the one you've already posted - no complaints, just is it possible to clearly scan it? Someone?

Because of the blurry fuzz. I think it's making it look like there are more balconies than there actually are.
