Modernist Facadism on King Street.

😮 I knew this was happening but still…this is the 1970 offices of #YunckenFreeman on King Street in West Melbourne, and it’s being facaded for a hotel development (which is better than it was going to be). The first example of modernist #facadism, and prob not the last, though new @cityofmelbourne guidelines very much say it’s not ok anymore. First image streetview from Dec 2020, then SLV, then the proposal, then Graeme Butler last week.
