The Arts: Architecture

Enjoy the Gothic style of architecture which made St Georges Cathedral higher, stronger and filled with light through use of the pointed arch, ribbed vault and flying buttress.

Take in the rare Art Deco style of St Margaret’s Anglican Church, Nedlands which showcases bold geometric shapes, vertical fins and a stepped skyline.

The revolutionary spirit of the 1960’s is showcased at Wollaston College Chapel in its (what was seen at the time to be) radically, even frighteningly modern design inspired by the Chapel of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp and designed by Hungarian-born architect Julius William Elischer.
