Photo of the day – View from Summit restaurant
Published by imageservices on September 2, 2008 in Photo of the day.
This image was taken at the Summit Restaurant which is located on the 47th floor of the Harry Seidler designed Australia Square building in Sydney. The Summit restaurant kindly allowed us to spend some time up there to document how it looks today. It underwent refurbishment in 1999 and the modernist history was considered highly amongst the brief, including the inclusion of these white Eero Saarinen tulip chairs.
The Museum photographers revisited city sites that were influential in the modernist period and documented them on how they look and how they are being used in a contemporary way. This was taken to coincide with the new exhibition on modernism in Australia.
