1 Spring St (Shell House)

Those interested in the work of Australian architect Harry Seidler attended a tour at 1 Spring Street, Seidler’s only tall building erected in the State of Victoria. Wandering the floors, participants were able to study the late Modernist architecture, which attracted debate and controversy when first opened in 1988. Participants also had the opportunity to examine the building’s art, public space, and workplaces, all coexisting in a successful commercial tall building. A rooftop view also allowed participants an unimpeded view of Melbourne’s Hoddle Grid of streets, defining the boundaries of the central business district.
