Perth in 3D - Rooftop Views - Northbridge Link

If there's one thing that beats an abandoned building, its a rooftop. Perth put on a trademark winter sunset on Friday evening. Fortunately, that was the day after I had figured out how to get onto the roof of a Perth tower. From this angle, it is clear that Perth is finally moving away from the St Georges Terrace 2D spine, and into the realms of 3D. William St is at the forefront of this expansion North.

The train-line is a harsh divider, limiting not only the expansion of the city core North (towards the right in this photo), but also restricting the movement of people, the lifeblood of the city. Do humans respond to the topological aesthetics of a skyline? Strangely enough, much like a tropical rain-forest, once the city canopy extends above, life will naturally follow and grow below. The Northbridge Link plants the seeds for the extension of our CBD forest.

Hi there. Feel free to comment, but keep this in mind:
This is a happy place, lets keep it that way, together. In this day and age of spam and idiots, I need to check every comment before it gets published. If it's now 2013, odds are I'm on a tropical beach somewhere in South East Asia, or possibly checking out some abandoned Soviet-era architecture in Eastern Europe, and maybe your comment won't appear for some time. But leave one anyway! If you have a personal message for me, I won't publish the comment, so feel free to submit it here. Thanks for checking out 6000TIMES, and have a nice day.
