Greg Burgess Ministry Housing

Repost 2013:

When the Ministry of Housing aka the #HousingCommissionofVictoria did actual infill terrace housing, instead of their previous high rise flats. These ones by #gregburgess 1983ish. Height of #postmodern referencing – #federation angles and #verandahs plus #victorian #polychrome #brickwork. If this site done today would be 5 storeys of flats. Not #heritagelisted but should be, along with the others by DCM, Edmond & Corrigan, Norman Day, and others.
