The Great Pyramid - Flats in Tasmania

When you think of Tasmania and homes, flat dwellings are probably not the first thing that come to you mind.  But towns and cities around Tasmania have quite a number of residential blocks ranging from 3-4 levels, with Hobart containing the tallest structures.  Hobart has a wide variety of flats from Art Deco, Mid Century and the latter part of the 20th Century, as is this example circa late 1970s/early 80s.

Such buildings remind us of our past, but are relevant in today's context with issues of supporting population growth, and urban sprawl and livability.
