Best view of arena

The one in which from several road-lined buildings back the Arena’s angular roof climbs into the sky like a modern church spire.

Drawing the viewer to it as strongly as the stadium’s Klein blue and what’s on offer inside, whether it is a Wildcats final or Springsteen on song.

The creators of that building ” Ashton Raggatt McDougall ” will no doubt have the same aspirations for the proposed Joondalup performing arts centre in Grand Boulevard.

And have the same vision for the built landscape as celebrated Australian author David Malouf when he describes a renewed architecture as ‘a way of orienting the life, the energy flow, of what are surely the major artefacts of our own era, modern cities’.

‘Architecture,’ Malouf writes, ‘is, of all the arts these days, the one that makes something happen.’
