We went to the University of Western Australia on the weekend to catch a concert at Winthrop Hall. The impressive building dates from 1932 and is often described as being Italian style.
It doesn’t strike us as looking so Italian, but that’s mainly because you can admire the building from across the spacious lawn and reflection pool. In Italy the historic buildings often face onto a small piazza, so you have to look at them from up close. If you do that with Winthrop Hall, it looks much more Italian.
