Day 575, Urban Geometry

Architects do all sorts of interesting things to hide mundane but necessary pieces of plant associated with services like power, water and cooling.

I discovered this example on the corner of Pultney Street and North Terrace in the the Adelaide CBD.

I am not sure what this technicolor grill is hiding other than two large white cylindrical stacks which may be a part of the building’s air-conditioning system. Anyway the continuous Technicolor light show makes it all seem like a piece of art rather than an ugly part of the air-conditioning plant.

I just loved the geometry and especially the symmetry of this image.
