I’ve often wondered if the guy that made Vault (Ron Robertson-Swann) painted it yellow because it looks good against a blue sky. Even one with clouds.
He designed it in the late 70s and the tradies who constructed it called it Steelhenge. Melbournians called it The Yellow Peril for years. I think it was ahead of its time.
I’ve decided my Major Folio this semester will be an exploration of large interiors that dress to impress.
I'm not really sure what that's got to do with Vault or Swann but I'm impressed enough to look for other impressive things.
