Re: Adelaide Fringe 2020 (Video)

RCC on campus also returns to the original operating ethos of Edinburgh and Adelaide fringes of enlivening existing local venues rather than drawing away from them to travelling pop-ups. I do agree, though, that there should be a degree of public spectacle or city realm transformation, and that this...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

Any chance parts could be reopened for coronavirus patients? Or are we past the point of now return for the site? Only the residential wing remains structurally intact but I believe it has already been stripped internally. But the government has already requisitioned the old Wakefield and Golden Gr...

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

Speaking of the crown, a little disappointing to see a concrete box (plant room) sitting unadorned atop this building. I hope there's some treatment in store for it (more gold sheeting?) as it's really conspicuous.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Team Adelaide is mostly Liberal-aligned. The rest are mixed. Simms is obviously a former Greens senator, and we all know Moran to be conservative-leaning. But, of course, municipal politics in this state is supposed to be non-partisan... So Team Adelaide reflects the current "will of the people" ac...

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 138m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

That's excessively bright.

Or, at least, it comes across as such while the rest of the building remains dark. Perhaps it'll appear more moderate once the levels below fill and light up.

Agreed! But, for those new to the Internet, I'd also add: don't feed the troll.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

People are really struggling with reading comprehension here. Skybus will only be delivering airside, shuttle services not city connections. Although why the airport feels the need to outsource such basic operations is an interesting question.

Yeah, this crisis is a good lesson about practising not only personal hygiene but information hygiene. And a good opportunity to fine tool your media literacy to avoid spreading viral misinformation.

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

This is a new design. The article mentions other concept images; were they available on the website? Also, it's down from 27 to 23 storeys which is better but still too tall IMO (especially while the design remains seemingly unsympathetic to its surrounds). The timelines for completion are laughabl...

Scomo is doing better this time than when he was in Hawaii.
I don't know if actually just showing up for your job equates to doing better or, in fact, doing it well.

The reproduction rate in Australia is so far lower than the worst hit countries but not flat enough to keep us in line with the best controlled countries.
