This walk encompassed two multi-level carparks; found on Flinders and Queens St, and a hostel rooftop on Flinders Lane. My favourite was probably the Flinders St carpark found next to the Press Club Restaurant. It gave interesting perspectives from behind the old Herald Sun and Lindrum Hotel sign boards. Guaranteed speccy shots are to be had during the AFL season with the neon lights and MCG fully ablaze.
The highlight of the night came though when zig-zagging home from Queen St I happened upon an artist installation at Federation Square by Patrick Dougherty. This two-storey Islamic looking mosque is a class example of skill, patience and persistence. Unfortunately the display board provides little info on the impressive structure. Although the Fed Square website reveals it was constructed from ten tonne of willow saplings and sticks over the course of three weeks. His only instruments; gloves and a pair of secateurs. Respect. Although I’m guessing from its height that he was working on a ladder or from a cherry picker during the second storey phase. It has been commissioned as part of Fed Square’s ten-year anniversary. Get down to see it if you can, I’ll be returning for a second peek when the eye’s aren’t so heavy 🙂
