Nambour Hospital 2 of 3

There's a trend in modern architecture to introduce multiple textures and colours, it's almost as if there's a prize for the most bits one can fit in a given area.   Sometimes the result is quite abominable, but this seems to work for me.    I rather like all those smudges on the concrete which are actually photographically etched banksia leaves and flowers, and they should start to develop stronger contrasts as the concrete gathers dirt and mildew.  (Detail tomorrow)

Like the New as much as I like the Old. To me. that's the way architecture in a town/city needs to be... Is 'progress' the word I'm looking for.
