Hobart Gold // 1973

Another fresh edit from my Tasmanian 20th Century Modernism project. This time I explore the 1970s Modernist design by prominent Architect Sir Roy Grounds. His designs fascinate me, especially the Shine Dome in Canberra, the NGV in Melbourne and the Wrest Point Casino in Hobart. It stands as the tallest building in Hobart and as you go along Sandy Bay Road or get glimpses of the concrete tower from different vantage points of hilly Hobart it stands as a monument to the period. Wrest Point Casino, designed in 1973, just over 40 years ago. To this day it remains the tallest building in Hobart.
