Hillman House

Findlay Avenue

The letter writers are noisy in Sydney’s Northern burbs right now, protesting that an interior designer should be able to alter her own home’s interior.

Frank Gehry wows UTS

In case you hadn’t heard, UTS recently announced Californian celebrity architect Frank Gehry as the architect for the new Faculty of Business building in Ultimo. They’re obviously not trying to make friends with the local architectural fratenity. UTS are delighted and sound as if they’ve won the jackpot. The 80 year old legend, who has just been in town on a flying visit, declined to comment due to a tummy bug.

Arsenal 1, Yale 0, Melb -1

Arsenal’s old ground in London has been renovated into a housing complex. Allies and Morrison incorporated the old grandstands and planted the pitch. Clever.

Ballarat best and worst

Hot on the heels of an Albury newspaper’s Best and Worst Buildings comes Ballarat’s. A slightly more democratic method of determining the lists was used – polls rather than one journo’s whims.

Domain Rd Metro

Grimshaw’s concept design for the railway at Melbourne’s Domain Road interchange can be viewed at Architecture and Design. Apparently the train in the images is a high speed Seimens – may not be able to get a good head of steam up on that line.
