Well it may seem day-trips to the Hills are becoming habitual. Yesterday we joined the German Car Club for a cobweb-blowing exercise and the chance to revisit the pinnacle of architectural hero Iwan Iwanoff’s work – the Northam Public Library and Council buildings.
The early-70s buildings remain largely intact, although a small side balcony had an alarming lean to it, unfortunate retro-fit conduit tubes line the outside, and ugly Government Sports signage mars one entrance. But I followed the age-old optimism of photo buddy Frith “we’ll shoot around it”! The BreastScan bus proved a slightly distracting imposition – who could dream-up a more contrasting image: girly pink with brutalist grey concrete?
More local Iwanoff’s here.
