From ugliest to most stunning

After being in Melbourne for a couple of months, I admired many of its buildings, but coming across others I was surprised that such structures were allowed by any council.

The ugliest building, St Kilda

Near the junction of the Princess Highway, Queens Road and St Kilda Road, was my grandson’s favourite apartment block. I thought the building the most ugly I’d ever seen, with or without the multi-coloured exterior.

On the way to the Melbourne Museum, I passed the Princess Theatre. This 1800s building was originally an equestrian amphitheatre before it was renovated into a theatre and opera house. Operas are no longer performed in the building. Instead, modern musicals have taken over.

I visited Melbourne’s Royal Exhibition Building about ten years ago and because I remembered the stunning interior, wanted to revisit the domed building. When I arrived,  it was closed to visitors in preparation for an upcoming event — a disappointment because it was the most stunning building.
