City circuit on a Saturday

Please note that this post is brought to you by the all-new Hyundai Accent *

Last weekend I took some people from Hyundai on a tour of Inner Melbourne. This drive-around in a spanking new Accent was part of a multi-blogger series of design tours in the lead up to a design competition they are holding soon. Once I figured out how to start a car with no key, we were off.

We had three hours on a perfect Saturday morning and ended up spending so much time wandering around buildings that the itinerary was cut back to just the inner city. Still we managed to see quite a bit of Melbourne’s larger works.

We saw the gents at the shrine (no exeloo, this) / the shrine extensions by ARM/- Vault and ACCA in Sturt Street / slow drive bys of NGV, Federation Square, Russell Street cinemas, Total House, RMIT’s brain, RMIT Storey Hall, RMIT Building 8, coffee stop at the State Library, and Melbourne Terrace.

Their pro shots above are here followed with my attempts to use the camera they gave me to document the journey and future posts. As it was the first time I’d used it I was still trying to figure out exposure… still am.

Oh, what do you know. They’ve just put together a video.

* Please note: Hyundai Australia provided the use of a new Hyundai Accent for the day. An agency representative was also on hand to capture images and facilitate & fund the creation of the experience.
