    Help! I've fallen into a cubist painting, and I can't get up! Well done, Nick.

    Thanks everyone!

    It was the most peculiar building. The lower two stories are an existing masonry structure which was hollowed out and essentially given a new structural framework, meaning that the whole structure now site on several massive raised supports, so it looks like it's floating cantilevered about 1-3 metres off the ground!!! This is the main stairwell that rises through a hole in the floor to the first floor lobby.

    God knows how much it must have cost...

    Wow, a very abstract image from a real scene! I'd love to see that art gallery in person.
