Structure : Brisbane City Hall – “People’s Place”

Structure (Post#26) : Brisbane City Hall

Photos of the day are all about Brisbane City Hall. I was able to see this structure twice while walking around Central Business District of the city. I can say that I will not be the only one who will admire such splendid building that significantly show its structural characteristics. During Brisbane Open House event, I was only able to see this magnificent building outside. I thought that I  still have time to visit it but unfortunately, I was adrift with other buildings participating in the event.  The building was built within 10 years from 1920 to 1930. It is the second largest construction at that time next to Sydney Harbour Bridge. The building is a fine example of a classical revival civic with modern steel reinforced concrete column and beam structure. It was repaired, restored, and upgraded from 2010 to 2013. Currently it housed the Council Chambers and Museum of Brisbane. The building has major roles in the community in times of war, peace and celebration which earned it to be “People’s Place”. These photos are part of Brisbane Open House Event Tour last October 2013.
