As promised, I'll now take you on a tour of the interiors of some of the 70 buildings which were open to the public as part of Sydney Open. Sydney Open began in 1997 in response to a desire to celebrate the architecture of Sydney - old and new - and to encourage a dialogue between all those interested in the quality of our architecture and urban environment. The even opens the doors to many of the best buildings in our rapidly changing city. Sydney Open is held for one day only every two years (far too short in my opinion, it should be over two days).
Last week I showed you the exterior of, and view from, Sydney Masonic Centre and Civic Tower. Here is the interior of the Masonic Centre.
Main foyer. Its easy to see why they call this the "brutalist" style of architecture.
Main lodge room.
