#292 l Telstra Corporate Building l MELBOURNE l 218m l 47fl

218m/715ft
Telstra Corporate Building
Melbourne, Australia


HEIGHT: 218m/715 feet
FLOORS: 47 floors
COMPLETION: 1992
ARCHITECT: Perrot Lyon Mathieson

The new national headquarters for Australia's major telecommunications carrier, this 43 level building investigates the possibilities for city building other than the podium/tower or tower/plaza types. The lower levels, incorporating a number of old buildings, uses the historic patterns of the site to generate new forms. The tower, with its staggered and broken top, alludes to a more complex urbanistic image for the tower form.

A conservative design that indeed looks outdated.
