Melbourne Grammar School has built a new library it would seem. Next week when I arise for work at 4.30 in the morning to go to work at my crap job, do you think I will be a little bit bitter that a tiny portion of one cent of the tax I pay has gone towards building this library for the rich and privileged?
The positive is that at least they spent the money well. It is a very nice building. At some point in the evening the light falls on one angle of the brickwork and not the other. Stunning. You can use your imagination how that works in the third and fourth picture. See the outdoor concrete bench seats behind the car in the first pic? They are underlit. The building is just as nice from the other side, from what you can see from Domain Road.
Wish when I was young that I was a privileged kiddie.
PS The brickwork is beautiful. How come it is not used more often in buildings?
PSS Sorry Rosanna. I did not get around to dissing private schools until you returned.
