Before last week I’d never seen this view of Southern Cross Station. It looks quite unworldly. CL was giving me a quick tour of Media House — as he commented, it looks like something from Dune.
What you can’t see from the photos (not even zoomed-in) is that some sections closest to the edge, and between the lumpy bits, are actually inflatable plastic. Presumably it’s some essential part of the design.
Here’s a more conventional angle. Anubis and Chrome are still in residence.
I was impressed enough by the Google Chrome advertising at suburban railway stations, such as this poster at South Yarra.
Then someone told me Southern Cross Station had also had a Chrome makeover. Sure enough…
Apparently this Internet thingummy-wotsit has some money behind it.
