Office buildings continued


By the end of the 1970s architecture in Western Australia reflected the confidence and growth experienced in the State over previous decades.  Perth had become a city of suburban sprawl and freeways with the central city skyline rising to reflect an increased self-confidence.
 From the 1980s Western Australian architecture continued to develop modern skyscrapers. 
Built with shining metal and steel, buildings such as Allendale Square, the Bond/R&I tower, QV1 and Central Park all concentrated on raising taller and more impressive towers. 
The bare functionality of modernist buildings like Council House was replaced with gleaming symbols of corporate success and commercial status.
