Adelaide

















seven. adelaide is a great city with a funky square mile full of old tobacconists, vintage clothes shops, antiques, a vibrant old central market, old terrace housing and apartments. some of the suburbs are arguably the most classy and beautiful in Australia.

I used to think it was one sad skyline. But thats before I went there. Adelaide's skyline isnt very photogenic because it lacks anything really tall. But when you're actually walking the streets and gazing up at the high-rises you begin to appreciate it alot more. Some of the towers look quite imposing from the ground. The CBD is pretty dense and has a nice urban feel to it, which in my opinion beats a city with tall skyscrapers without having any street life.
Given that the metro population is only 1 million... I think its skyline suits the population. Gets a decent 5 from me.

As for the city itself, well I was very surprised. Wasnt quite the hick country town I'd imagined it to be. Gotta love all the parks and gardens that surround the city, the excellent culinary scene, cool nightlife, shopping on bustling Rundle street mall, Glenelg beach and the beautiful neighbourhoods. Very charming city that gets downplayed alot.

Oh wow that sun set photo Gives it so many points look at the gold
+ the ring or park and green add to the "sky line "
But a real center would be nice just one tall to compare
Although it migh make the others look squat
Still

Shape of the skyline is nice, has a focal point round Santos House (the tallest) and slowly spreads out around that. Not enough newer buildings though and not really enough height.

5 for skyscrapers
9.5 for charm

Beautiful City, does not really rate for skyscrapers though, but that is part of it's charm. In my opinion most mid size cities look much the same anyway, so Adelaide stands out in the fact that is not a copy of somewhere else..

i'm sure that it's a lovely city, but it's really hurting in the skyline department ... kinda looks like a third tier american city

It is ok. For some very odd reason, I see Boise, Idaho looking like that in ten years. That may or may not be a good thing for Boise. ?????????????.

Currently studyin architecture in Adelaide.... guess wat... i don't get distracted at all... coz there's not much places to hang out here besides the city (CBD) "Rundle Mall" the main shopping street in Adelaide <-- only a small street compared with ones in other Oz cities. Its sad.... according to my lecturers, the architecture in Ad is considered boring, and it is evident.... nothin ever goes on in Adelaide... and they build so slow... it takes them half a year to build a frame of a 5-10 storey building??? my gosh....
anyways.... these are just my random thoughts and opinions.

But one thing to note is that, the city plannin is pretty good, the whole city is basically a square grid, very easy to get around and not much traffic problem. transportatation is also very cheap here.
So it's all good studyin here... not sure bout workin.

So i rate this city 6.5
