A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Unishade



I noted yesterday that "Some of the Architectural detailing in the University Buildings is restrained, and beautifully resolved in it's sub-tropical environment."

And some of it isn't. While critically acclaimed, I cannot for the life of me see any justification for this immensely complicated stucture. Although it appears to be serving a purpose in providing sunshade, it doesn't appear to be oriented in a direction which provides any real benefit.

Begrudgingly, I admit that it looks pretty amazing, it could have been built from pieces salvaged after the war of the worlds.
