Welcome to the La Trobe Reading Room with its impressive Dome elevation and ceiling. This is the star attraction of the State Library of Victoria, and totally qualifies as a major visitor attraction in Melbourne’s inner city.
A gallery for a popular theme: life among urban geometry plus a number of architectural shots from Singapore. –WY

I really only made a very brief stop here. Not enough to make sufficient images to do the place justice, nor to stay around long enough to write a proper essay that would do this place justice. Still, I could say that the place is large, and there must be a lot more interesting architectural images I could capture if I stayed longer.

Why does this post have the ‘1’ postfix? Because this is definitely not the last time I will be visiting and making images of this place. There should be more photographic possibilities in the future when inspiration strikes again. Built on the site of the original National Stadium (Which was quite a large splendid example of brutalism. Do an internet search for images of it if you are interested.), the new Sports Hub encompasses a new Stadium, sports facilities, a mall (yup this is Singapore all right 😉 ), links to an indoor stadium, links to another mall with a cinema, links to other event halls, ice skating ring, and a whole load of other stuff. Read what the official website says, “a world-class, integrated sports, entertainment, and lifestyle hub delivering world-class sporting and entertainment events.”
