I would say this is another creative modern building, part commercial, part residential.

I hope the seat I choose is near the front, I would not want to miss any thing. Hope it has a sturdy seat belt too. :thumbsup: =)

Bro ... I believe this is the new Melbourne City Council Office. This building is called CH2 (City House 2). I remember it because I did a documentation for Architecture for Peace launch on this building.

It is the greenest and healthiest office space, awarded by UN, and has 6 Green Star Rating (i.e. the highest).

I believe the window flap open, when its doing a night purge (maybe?), letting fresh air in and hot air out by utilizing winds, and all the natural system.

It is quite a complex building tho ...

Have a thorough read here: [link];pg=1933

:) Good angle and great shot btw ... :thumbsup:

One of the buildings to UTS have a similar facade, just that the sun shades (or whatever it is) are horisontal instead of vertical.

Nice perspective and idea. If you find a house with horizontal ones you might want to call it "Front row for judgement day" :D

Great shot. It is very interesting how much like benches it looks. Awesome sky! It's an interesting architecture concept but I would not be able to live there because of the mesh type bars over the windows. I'd feel stuck.

Yeah, very interesting indeed. Before the building was completed, it looks like whole plank of wooden bars. No one knows that it can be opened in such way, so beautifully.

Oh yes, what a sight it probably was the first time they were all opened. I'm sure quite a few people stopped to take a look.

it's quite haunting in a way, i can't pinpoint what makes it that way though... maybe it's the fact that the sky is at the "wrong" place (we think those are benches but they're actually not)
