    At first glance it looks like the Commonwealth Bank.

    Had a mate from Kamala work on that building. He was incharge of supervising the plumbing. Had plenty of problems building to Australian standards with the workforce provided. It did give him a couple of years in BKK though.

    That looks like something out of the old Soviet block.

    Sure is fugly. Canberra probably paid millions for some wanker to design that POS.

    It does kind of remind me of a poor man's "Frank Gehry Brown Paper Bag Building" in Sydney which is a part of the UTS Campus...only much less interesting

    ^ Nope....every building/interior I ever designed was signed off by an engineer...as a designer you'd be crazy to accept responsibilty for the structural soundness of a building...leave that to the engineering experts...and ask them to leave the design up to you...555
