Photo of the day – Architectural lines (the Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre)

This is an architectural detail of the Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre that was designed by the world-renowned architect Harry Seidler. We photographed this building for our new exhibition on modernism in Australia. We decided to experiment with shooting some city sites famous during this period and with particular attention to the buildings by Harry Seidler. This pool complex was his last public project and incorporates some environmental initiatives including harvesting rainwater from the roof for internal uses, natural ventilation through roof vents and it is flooded with natural light.
