A 1960’s Lake Wendouree residential home is saved from the wrecking ball according to the Courier 6th October 2014. The home was designed by Robin Boyd one of Ballarat’s famous architects and is a post war Modernist building.
Whilst it is welcome news the question must be raised. Why did the Council vote to apply for a demolition application for Ballarat’s Civic Hall? The Civic Hall is an historic building of Architectural and Social significance. We are the only large and growing regional city in Victoria without an operating Civic Centre. Hopefully common sense will prevail and our Civic Hall will be reactivated and refurbished for public use….. The Community Design Process is about to open very soon.
