Evendale Memorial Hall

Completed in 1964, the Evendale Memorial Hall puts an emphasis on strong lines and features. The footpath access to the right of the building complements the symmetry or the hard right angles of the rest of the building. Go closer to the main entrance and there is a fascinating wall feature of open square cuts in the walls. The more I study and document this period of architecture the more I see the use of such features. The other popular design that I have observed from this period is the jutting out effect of bricks on walls. I can only imagine these features acted as a form of decoration in a post war climate as well as allowing air to circulate.
