I'm searching for a building which facade was designed like an famous photograph. I couldn't say if it's the "Regent Place & Meriton Tower" or not.
But i think it wasn't that high! The buildings i mean is located in the neighbourhood of Westpac Place!

I see. You meant the 15 level "Dupain" which is not going ahead now due to the East Darling Harbour development
(the grey concept towers @ the end of the first post). Dupain would be hidden by the towers and just be a waste.
It was designed before they were announced.

Based on a photograph known as "Bondi" by Max Dupain:



The towers of East Darling Harbour will start where the low white-roofed shed is:



Instead we're getting a 45m low-riser for The Macquarie Bank with a large footprint, along with a new 50m American Express Building,
both under construction: King Street Wharf Development

American Express Tower:

Small render with veritcal features:

lol
sydney and australia overall oozes mediocrity,i mean look at those towers in the CBD they are just so bland.dont get me wrong i love this city just as much as my place of birth and always i've always defended it with vigour,but it always dissapoints me with it's tall-poppy syndrome.the entire city council with clover moore should be abolished and also frank sartor .these guys are a disgrace to city planning.they should start appointing young red blooded people with a more forward looking attitude towards future development.
if this continues then god knows what will happen to this beautiful city

Most of the buildings look pretty good. Meriton tower on the hand looks like a jumbled mess.

I think that's truer for the past & a lot of architects have understood this since, therefore have made an effort to come up with "better" (for want of a better word) designs over the last few years. 10 years ago, Sydney was pretty much a city of "flat-tops".

Here are some smaller projects earmarked for the Sydney CBD 50m+< ...

Gloucester Street Apartments - 84m (Proposed)




11-15 Alberta Street Apartments - 63m (Approved)



__


83 Goulburn Street - 55m (Proposed)




257 Clarence Street - 53m (Approved)




Taragon Central - 53m (u/c)





...and for another render: Taragon Central


185 Macquarie Street - 52m (u/c)






485 Wattle Street - 52m (u/c)






503 Kent Street - 51m (u/c)




Park Central - 50m (Approved)

Some great designs. I like 33 Bligh Street; holes in a building usually are meaningless but this design gives that idea a good purpose (sunlight at streetlevel I assume).
