EUREKA!

The 92-storey Eureka Tower is Melbourne's tallest building at 300m high and is currently the world's tallest residential building.







Two 300,000 litre water tanks on level 90 & 91 prevent any excess swaying

The top of the tower can flex up to 600mm in high winds.




The glass on Eureka's top 10 levels is 24 carat gold plated

Eureka's white horizontal lines represent the linear line markings on a surveyors measuring staff




Eureka used 110,000 tonnes of concrete and weighs 200,000 tonnes

These pics of Eureka tower by the firm Fender Katsalidis are amongst the best I've ever seen. I've been to the skydeck of this tower and the views are indeed breath-taking. Greek-Australian architect Nonda Katsalidis is recognised as one of the most prominient architects in Melbourne and Australia, having also collaboratively designed World tower in Sydney, the tallest building in that city. Katsalidis has been working feverishly in Asia as of late and the signature architect's wiork is much sort after both home and abroad. Multimillionaire David Walsh who established MONA, the museum of old and new art in Tasmania prefers Katsalidis designs over Frank Gehry, having this to say:
Quote:
Even on a world scale, MONA is an audacious undertaking, architecturally and philosophically. The museum, by the Melbourne architect Nonda Katsalidis, is an engineering feat, three levels underground, carved into the sandstone cliffs of Berriedale Peninsula. Some commentators have lauded it as the Bilbao of the south, but that is a label Walsh abhors

''Yeah, I've got to say that gives me the shits,'' he says. ''I don't like the Bilbao of the north at all … It's just a bloody architectural masturbation: 'How good am I? How good am I?' It's like a dog barking. All [Frank] Gehry's buildings are the same. All Nonda's buildings are different because he's actually trying to solve a problem.''

Read more: http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/...#ixzz1nd8n8EN9
Katsalidis along with many other notable Greek-Australians in Melbourne and elsewhere in Australia, including Andrew Demetriou the CEO of Australian Rules Football are a reflection of the prosperous Greek-ancestry community of Australia, whose parents and grand-parents came with nothing to the antipodes, with many of their children having climbed and reached the top of every sector of Australian society.

MELBOURNE IN 360Ί

From Skydeck 88 (on the 88th floor) of Eureka Tower, Melbourne's tallest building, is an awe inspiring view like no other - an unforgettable panorama of the city and beyond.
