Build Riparian Plaza out of glass.

Fine I owe you a coke. I did a total 15 minutes of looking and couldn’t find anything
I don't believe there is a single person on this forum or beyond (and that includes those heritage advocates such as myself) that want to see the existing building on this site retained or incorporated into the new building... Now if it were the previous Bank of Australia building that once occupied the site then absolutely but that was pulled down for the pile of crap that's there now. I suspect that the curvature in the design of the proposed hotel building proposed for this site is paying some homage to the aforementioned Bank of Australia building (pictured below) anyway...baytram366 wrote: ↑Thu Apr 22, 2021 12:54 pmI'm normally a fan of retaining vintage / retro buildings but in this case, the current building has no redeeming qualities and as every day passes, it gets vandalized more and more and fills with bird poo. Has anyone else noticed that one of the vent / drawer type things facing Currie St has been open for quite a while and a big pile of crap has collected on the floor inside the building? Add to that the temp fencing around it, its not a good look for the city. I hope demolition of this building happens soon as the plan for the new building looks great. Very exciting to see something with a curved facade in Adelaide. We have far too many boxy buildings going up currently so it will be good to see something different.
I love that popped open panel. It's been like that for at least 2 years, and makes the building look like a spring loaded toy.
The government architect doesn't give approvals or rejections, they simply make comments and recommendations that should be taken aboard when the panel or approving officer makes the final decision to approve or reject a development.HiTouch wrote: ↑Sun Apr 25, 2021 10:51 pmAgree with the pedestrian weatherproofing idea however, is this the lady that is responsible for letting the way mouth cheese and shitty student accommodation on North Terrace get the green light? If so, she should have no say in what is tasteful. I bet her home has plaid drapes with brown carpet.
