Caulfield Tech, 1947

Repost 2018:

The most excellent #CaulfieldTechnicalSchool extension by the ever creative #PercyEverett, chief architect of the #publicworksdepartment. Streamlined Modernist designed during ww2 and built 1947, by when it looked a bit retro. The #hexagonal feature may or may not be inspired by the the #RussianConstructivist #melnikovhouse, since percy went to russia in 1930. A landmark for anyone driving into town from the south east. Still annoyed though that they replaced the original small pane #steelframedwindows with these reflecty square windows in the 90s; now it sort of blends with the sky (plus wrong day, wrong time).
