Detroit has several old skyscrapers with impressive interiors. The most interesting one is the lobby of the Guardian Building (built in 1929, architect Wirt C Rowland):

1 Bligh Street is a new tower in Sydney. The atrium is pretty awesome and stylish.













Quote:
The premium grade office tower was designed by Ingenhoven Architects of Germany and Architectus of Australia.
It is an ecologically sustainable development and was awarded six-star green status by the Green Building Council of Australia. Green features include a basement sewage plant that recycles 90 percent of the building waste water, solar panels on the roof and air conditioning by chilled beams. It is Australia’s first major high-rise building with a full double-skin fašade with external louvers. These conserve energy, eliminate sky glare and optimise user comfort. The angle of the louvers blades is automatically adjusted depending on their orientation to the sun. A naturally ventilated, full height atrium, on the southern side of the building, maximises natural light to each office level.
The building also houses a childcare centre, two cafes and basement car park for 96 cars.
The large-scale aluminium sculpture at the top of the curving steps at the entrance on the corner of Bligh and O'Connell streets is by New York based Australian James Angus. The developers describe it as "a complex network of three-dimensional ellipsoidal surfaces drawn from shapes expressed in the design of the building," adding that its brightly painted colour scheme traces the underlying geometry of the sculpture.
The building was named the Best Tall Building Award in Asia & Australasia for 2012 in the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat's Skyscraper Awards.

Awesome interiors!

I absolutely loved the interior of One Wall Street (Irving Trust Building). I was there some weeks ago and it was like magical

The walls of the lobby and banking room are all covered by mosaic art designed by Hildreth Meiere.

There's a bank building here in Melbourne that is quite similar to this. It was constructed in a high gothic style (which is strange as it was built in Victorian times, were many neo-gothic buildings built then?). It belongs to the ANZ Bank (I think the oldest bank in Australia & New Zealand). Now the offices are long gone, but it still operates as a bank and a banking museum.

A lot of gothic buildings were built during Victorian times. The gothic revival period started in England in the 1800s and carried on well into the 20th century. Canada seems to have a quite a few buildings like this. Is Australia the same?
