Percy Everett does Collegiate Gothic

A fine example of #ArtDeco-ised #CollegiateGothic, at #MelbourneUniversity, all vertical ribs implying Gothic but without any pointed arches. Built 1939 as the #SchoolOfNaturalPhilosophy (I think that means biology) and designed by the versatile #PercyEverett chief architect of the #PublicWorksDepartment. This is the year after his nearby #ChemistryBuilding which is a bit more clearly Gothic. Ps looks like some of the stone repaired recently hence it’s almost grey colour.
