    I love to draw old buildings and this inspires me.

    In the 1970's and 80's much of this building was occupied by the New South Wales Institute of Technology. It was then demolished and the site is now occupied by World Square.

    Demolished... why do they demolish the beautiful buildings to build garbage that falls apart? Such a fantastic building with true craftsman ship evident.
