Hobart Flats - Gardens in the sky

 These interesting pyramid style flats look to have been built in the 1970s/80s. As I was studying and photographing them, they remind me of some of the Brutalist style Government buildings such as Henty House in Launceston.  The pyramid style construction allow for each flat to have a veranda and garden space, whilst taking advantage of sunlight.  This approach is evident in many Brutalist period buildings.
