What a fine example of Modernist design is the Commonwealth Bank in the Hobart CBD. This building has always fascinated me, it's like a hybrid cross between art deco and post war design.
The curves are so art deco in style, yet the repetition that plays throughout the windows is familiar in many post war designs, as well as the sheer bulk of the building. I think all the concrete makes the building feel like a fortress, and I reckon it works brilliantly being on the street corner with its smooth transitional curve. Look more closely at the building and the concrete has been impregnated with a tinge of terracotta throughout.
