Queens College Melbourne University – Eakins Hall

The speccy #EakinsHall at #QueensCollege #Melbourne University was built 1962. Love that folded timber ceiling, presumably cladding some interesting trusses. Designed by #BatesSmartMcCutcheon, it makes and interesting comparison with their Wilson Hall of a few years before. The walls are #concreteblock, meant to emulate stone (which they don’t). Great low hanging copper #canisterlights, and a rather mad glass reed chandelier thing over the stage.
