Aurora Power Sub-Station

I have built an entire collection of photographs around sub-station and water plants in Tasmania. The joy of having passion to document all facets of Modernist design and architecture is the joy of seeing everyday objects in a new light. In this case the brick work that juts outwards in this sub-station such an example.  It's used here to create decorative patterns on what would otherwise would be a red brick wall. I like how the brick vents also form part of the patterning.  I've seen this technique used on many types of buildings, large and small and different types of buildings from large hospitals, to residential.
