Architectural patterns in the city streets of Adelaide
AUGUST 2, 2023
I am beginning this Blog with a few photographs of architectural patterns that I have taken around the city environment of Adelaide, South Australia. These are not exclusive to my town, but patterns and reflections that can be found in any city. I adore the rectangular form, and find I am often drawn to it without thinking. I feel it is a hidden lament for never having become an architect when I was younger. Along with this, I love that little cracks and imperfections can often be seen in the architectural attempts at perfection, that are the source of future corruption and deterioration. Reflections is another breakdown of the solid, structural rigidity of a building, as the imperfection of glass, causes distortions and wobbliness in the reflected image. I hope you enjoy these images and feel free to wander over to my architectural portfolio.

Reflections found at 400 King William Street, Adelaide, is a constant fascination of distorted reflections particularly in heavy weather.

The side of 149 Flinders Street facing Pulteney Street is a series of hinged metal plates that flow and pulse to the mood of the wind. It is a soothing and mesmerising wall to watch.
