This time last week, we were heading from Melbourne airport to the city and our route took us through Carlton, right by this strange and unusual structure. If I hadn’t been in a taxi at the time, I would surely have taken multiple shots of PIXEL. You should’ve seen me scrambling to activate the camera on the iPhone in the half-minute or so that was the period of time we were stopped at the lights. “Stay red, stay red!” the thought repeated itself in my head as I jabbed the tightly gripped device out the car window. One shot was all I got.

Some buildings really make you look twice, don’t they? It was like when I saw the Palace Electric the prior weekend…

I like it mainly because it’s so odd. I’ve never seen another like it. But it’s a little on the crazy side, which for archiporn purists might be just a little bit too much, ugly even. But if the objective was to turn heads, then I think Mission Accomplished.

It makes me think of pieces of paper, cut into random shapes… Kind of like crude confetti. What about you? Any strong feelings for or against?

  1. That is a stunning structure!

    Jade, I reckon someone should pay you to go around the world to admire buildings and structures, take photos of them, write your thoughts down and then print them out into a coffee table book! It would be a great coffee table book!
    I love the way you write about architecture, buildings and the surroundings that inspire you.

  2. Remembering my last visit to Australia and my time in Melbourne – loved the architecture and the restaurants – hopefully will visit again –
    PS love your eye for buildings
