Designed by Future Systems, an architectural and design practice producing highly original work, the Selfridges Building is a landmark building on the edge of the Bullring Shopping Centre in Birmingham housing the Selfridges & Co Department Store. Costing £60 million it consists of a steel framework with a sprayed concrete facade. Completed in 2003, the building has since become an architectural icon and is seen as having majorly contributed to the regeneration of Birmingham's City Centre.

worlds tallest statue 182m/600ft
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-45396916


The world's tallest statue is nearing completion in India.

It is designed to be a 182m (600ft) high tribute to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, a hero in India's independence struggle, in Gujarat state.

The Spring Temple Buddha in China is currently the world's biggest statue at 128 metres.

India's statue has cost 29.9bn rupees (£330m; $430m) and is seen as a pet project of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The "Statue of Unity", as it is known, will be inaugurated by the Indian leader on 31 October.

Nah I can't picture any Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane architect entertaining anything that unique here. Adelaide needs this.

Look at the wonderful view a million plus apartment in Docklands gets you to see such wonderful architure :lol:

When I had a look at that building in person last November I wondered what drugs they were on to build what looks like the Ministry of Truth in 1984.

Guess you can't call it a building but check out the new 'Vessel' structure at the Hudson Yards project in Manhattan New York. It is basically stairs...unique...Someone can post pics I hope.
