This time, walking up to the university from my hotel.
Hey- look at this building! It’s covered in greenery although by night it has a rather tacky illuminated panel suspended from the building. But if they decide that they simply have to build a high-rise on the top of Heidelberg Hill in Melbourne, perhaps they could aspire to something as striking as this.
It looks better from inside the building. You can look up through a glass atrium.
I wonder what this building used to be? It looks like a power station perhaps? No- I asked a Man in a Hard Hat, who I figure would know. He said it was a brewery. But it seems that it, too, will be turned into apartments.
The university fronts onto Victoria Park, which has an outdoor swimming pool. None of that mamby-pamby indoor pool stuff for these swimmers!
