592. 17 Wylde St. Potts Point N.S.W



Dear Harry,

This modernist curved structure is one of Sydney's best
apartment buildings. It was designed by crimean, australian
emigre architect Aaron Bolot in 1951. It is one of the first
buildings to employ a segmental radial floor plan layout.
A little later Alvar Aalto designed and built in 1959-62 a
similar, much higher, structure in Bremen, Germany.

Happy new year.
