Raymond Priestly building, Melb Uni, 1970

Original post 11 April 2020

The #RaymondPriestly Building at #MelbourneUniversity was plonked on the middle of the campus in 1967-70; designed by Douglas Alexandra and #RayBerg in association with the Uni’s architect #RaeFeatherstone it’s got this great stylised Gothic cloister effect instead of #pilotis, which I think would have been howled down anywhere else. Unfortunately it’s also a #windtunnel.
