This morning I found a story at Dezeen on a place I spent a month last year on residency in Cairns in Far North Queensland.
|Images I took during the month up north...|
The photos from this Dezeen article were brilliant and I so wanted to share this post that I went to the Dezeen Copyright page to check what was feasible to share. Having learnt there that as long as I dont repost the article in its entirely I can share the following, especially as I don't make a practice of doing this which would of course upset things.
SO... please note that all this content I am about to share has been taken from Dezeen's article: http://www.dezeen.com/2013/03/11/cairns-botanic-gardens-visitors-centre-by-charles-wright/ and I hope you enjoy reading about this. At first sight, I might add, I was a little thrown by the use of the mirrors. I didn't particularly associate this as a building material one would bring to a Botanic Garden... however ... as I spent most days passing through the Visitor's Centre I found it really worked.
Many comments at the post were about birds crashing into the building and dying... but I must say I never saw nor heard reports or whispers on that during the month I was there... so perhaps not being a tall building its not impacting that particular issue greatly.
