Pillars, St Kilda

Pillar, St Kilda

There are a couple of art deco pillars on the St Kilda foreshore along Jacka Boulevard that were designed by architect of Canberra, Walter Burley Griffin.

They consist of stacked rectangles with relatively deep vertical grooves and a single rounded element on the inside of each one.

They mark the entrance to Brooks Jetty and according to the 2004 St Kilda Pier Kiosk Conservation Management Plan by David Moloney for Parks Victoria the pillars are orphans of an 'extensive streetscape design'.
