Architectural incompetence down under

Australian æsthetic abominations

Visiting Sydney, Dalrymple is surprised to learn that Blues Point Tower (Harry Seidler and Associates, 1962) has been declared a heritage building and is therefore

immune from well-deserved and indeed æsthetically obligatory demolition.

Seidler’s MLC Centre (1977) also strikes Dalrymple as being

one of the worst buildings in Sydney.

It would, he says,

surely be enough to preserve one of Seidler’s buildings — as a frightful warning — somewhere in the middle of the desert.
