Archive for the ‘Craigend Street’ tag
When you’ve got to go, you’ve got to go.
We spotted this loo a couple of weeks ago, on Craigend Street, at the corner of Surrey Street.
You could take it home and see if it works, or you could just find out on the spot if the urge was that great.
We noticed this lonely looking robot at the end of the right-angled cul-de-sac, Little Surrey Street, several days ago.
We snapped a photo, naturally, but didn’t quite get around to doing anything more. That is, until Kym Chapple tweeted another robot sighting in the neighbourhood.
He – has to be a he, right? – is on the corner of Craigend Street and Oswald Lane.
There’s something I like about robots in love. It’s part of the reason I love Mari Velonaki‘s beautiful robotic creations, could be the relic of a childhood reading Asimov novels. Whatever, I like it. More romantic robots.
The mystery continues. More chalk on the walls in Darlinghurst.
These were picked up by Allie Townsend. They’re hard to read because of the light, but both are on Craigend Street, the photo on the left is on the corner of Surrey Street.
So to recap, we now have:
A is for “azimuth”
C is for “cephlapod”
D is for “diatribe”
E is for “entropy”
F is for “fiasco”
G is for “gyroscope”
K is for “kibosh”
M is for “modulate”
N is for “nebulous”
T is for “thought bubble”
Y is for “yesterday”
Z is for “zipper”
Anagram, riddle, random inspiration?
We last posted about the pending opening of Japanese place, Sushi Yachiyo, back in May 2009.
Well, the location is yet to prove itself un-haunted as we are still waiting for the doors to open for business.
It must be soon though, as I noticed take-away menus affixed to the door, with a voucher for free edamame, when walking past yesterday.
And this morning, a workman was busy inside, before 7am.
I walk past a building on the corner of Craigend Street and Kirketon Road in Darlinghurst most days. It has an intricate facade, and a seemingly perfect location overlooking Kings Cross and the city.
Haunted, cursed, bad feng shui?
In the buzz following Clover Moore’s liquor licensing changes, a DA went through to open ‘Lotus Wine Bar’ downstairs. Seems like such a cool location. It was going to be a seven day a week, 11am to 3am place. But less than two months later, in August, the $75,000 proposal was withdrawn.
Prompted by Scot’s comment below, I checked out the background for Dale Jones-Evans’s intriguing (and, in 2004, award winning) building. It’s all here.
As the architect and developer I imagined a precious, gritty little building exploding out of this tiny, Tokyo-like, 7 x 15 metre, forgotten site. A commercial redevelopment appeared more suitable to the intense nodal semiology of the Kings Cross circus, William Street Boulevard, the corner condition; the urbanity of traffic-tunnel-signage and the general prevalence of human lunacy.
I think the Emily Kame Kngwarreye work’s gone though. Anyone know when/where?
I took this pic last week – on the corner of Craigend Street and Kirketon Road, Darlinghurst.
I think it has been there for weeks and weeks and even with all the heavy rain we’ve had recently, the vomit stain remains.
