Bartlett blasts Perth's skyline

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 25 July, 2012 - 10:20 AM
The new BHP building has felt the full force of a Liam Bartlett blast.

6PR columnist Liam Bartlett has gone toe to toe with City of Perth CEO Frank Edwards over the council's handling of the Perth skyline. Liam took aim directly at the new BHP Billiton building and its garish neon sign.

  • Having taken a few photos of the Perth skyline over the years, including some panoramas from South Perth and Kings Park, although breathtaking in general, the skyline is now blighted by what I'm calling the "black monolith" (similar to the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey). It's big, black, cold, daunting and I might add, uninspiring.
    Having travelled to Dubai back in January this year, I was able to witness some architectural flair, gaudy perhaps, but many of the buildings that peppered the Dubai skyline definitely made it more interesting, at least from someone who appreciates urban architecture.

  • I'd like to throw my hat in the ring for the next big fat town planning gig. Sure, I admit I don't have any architectural quals or experience, but hey, how hard can it be to draw up a rectangular box? Bet mine wouldn't look any worse than that. Maybe I could get a start in the burbs. I could approve a demo home suburb like Applecross Point. An overseas guest out on my boat a month ago said "What happened to the beautiful Majestic Hotel and the grassy hills. What is that mess, it looks like a ghetto" Or the comment I got about Subiaco's revamp.."looks like a Hollywood movie set with all that el cheapo tilt up cr*p". Yeah, i'm absolutely up for it, and I bet it pays well.,,,really, really well. If you know what I mean.
