I read somewhere someone said about the RMIT building 'A terrible disease killed off all the architects and Melburnians had to design their own buildings'. Architects everywhere are probably cringing at that quote but it makes me chuckle every time I pass along Latrobe St.
Edited to add: I have just googled (after the event, of course) and it is known as the Green Brain. Apparently it explores the tension between ideas and materiality.
I guess in terms of architecture being designed to challenge and stimulate, it succeeds.
