WITH A PRIME MINISTER’S DEATH IN MIND, WE LOOK AT SOME OTHER EPHEMERA FROM THAT PART OF THE COLLECTING WORLD.
This is a photograph of the scale model. It shows the two curved walls unifying the two chambers, surrounded by offices, and with a ceremonial central core (yes that comes from the architects). Interesting that the grass roof which is now such a feature was not part of this model.
This smaller and less striking image is a sketch of the Reception Hall with a large skylight and Australian timber.
