IMO it would have been really neat if SAHMRI was built as one big massive iconic building instead of 2 smaller buildings. Could have been a really nice landmark.

I think it’s less visually imposing to have two separate buildings, plus size-wise it fits better with the surrounding buildings. Also opportunities for different architecture.

Noticed on the train this morning there is a blue shade type screen erected on the northern side of the building and a large skip bin out the front of the former railways control building. I assume internal demolition has started.

It's probably only me, but I always liked the brutalist bunker type design of the control centre, with its angled glass windows.

as a kid I always liked seeing it - it was about the most futuristic looking building I knew of in Adelaide. The new building looks fantastic, but I will miss the control building a little bit as well.

Work is currently being done on site today, looks like they are doing some removal works first before demolition, I suspect this isn't far off now then?
