The Tower Corporation Building in Customhouse Quay, Wellington despite its obvious bulk has some nice deco details which you can see along the original roofline, the spandrels and the panels below the windows.
The glass above the main entrance is a real standout.
And the side door isn't bad either.
The building was designed by architect J T Mair and the foundation stone was laid on 5th October 1936.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
