I took Osprey nest pictures in Florida so I have Osprey on the brain, and that second shot sure reminds me of one. My compliments both to you for the pictures and to your architects for creating such unusual and visually grabbing work.

Thanks Mark and Steve. I don't claim to understand architecture but I agree with Steve's sentiment about having something different to look at. Osprey nest hey, never thought of it but yes that is similar

That's one crazy looking building, it looks like someone gave an Erector set to a hopped up schizophrenic. Great photos!

Thanks Jerry, vaiboy and Ted. Yes a stangre building, but one that works. Initially caused quite a stir, but Melbournians are letting it grow on them.

Very interesting captures Rafael. Certainly its an unusual building. Its refreshing to see people thinking "outside the box". The lighting captivates me, are the woodsticks realor man made?

Emmanuel, thanks for looking. The sticks looked very real to me, so I must assume they are real.
