Sydney - Definitely one of the best cities in the world in terms of living standards, physical beauty and architecture. There's my 2 cents

P.S - Great photos.

Some more Sydney wonders. For a city that apparently got it so wrong it ain't doing too badly!


Very pommy looking Sydney

LOL I have to disagree on the parcel and post building ... this one should be demolished. It's a horror. Either than ot they should shuve a skyscraper in it and partially keep the facade. Personally I think its more ugly than the UTS tower in the background.

Yeah, the orange bit is ace, but the rest is a little disappointing as far as Engelen Moore designs go. It's easy to miss looking from Whitlam Square/Oxford Street because the Liverpool Street frontage is so nondescript. Also, as good as the orange looks (and isn't it great to have some colour in Sydney?!), the apartments in that part of the building apparently have an orange glow inside...

I like it. Very European. Needs a bit of a clean though.
