Reserve Bank of Australia

The front entrance and foyer of the heritage listed Reserve Bank of Australia along Martin Place. The Reserve Bank building is a 22 storey office tower bounded by Macquarie Street, Martin Place and Phillip Street. It was designed by F.J.Crocker and built in 1964 in the Post War International architectural style. The foyer wall mural was designed and installed by local artist Bim Hilder. It is made up of many separate small parts of beaten copper and bronze, quartz crystal and semi-precious stones.

  1. Pretty! I will look for that next trip.

  2. I like the look of the whole place especially with that mural, Jim!

    1. I'm going to try and take a photo inside the foyer so there is a better view of the mural, if they allow it.

  3. Inviting ... would be nice to step inside and see more. :)

  4. Wow, beaten copper, quartz and semi-precious stones? A lot of trouble to go to for the type of building it is. Lovely.

  5. I like that the doors allow a view of the impressive mural.


  6. A very distinctive style of this artist - I would like to see it from up close because of the materials used. (I see now you're investigating if you can take other photos - even a detail would be great:)

  7. I love how big institutions like banks really strive to stand out with their buildings. This one does have a very grand but very open-air feel to it. Quite impressive indeed. Thanks for sharing it :-)


Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
