Royal Hobart Hospital - Modernist Highrise Tower Block
This large bulk forms part of the Royal Hobart Hospital complex. Thesite is vast and like most hospitals has had additions added over time. This section I am guessing would date from the 1950/60s, whilst the original hospital was designed in the Art Deco style by Leighton Irwin. The glass and steel facade is one of the most noticeable buildings as you make your way into Hobart.
