Parliament Square, Hobart (Autumn 2010)

The re-development of Parliament Square in Hobart has just received a planning permit, but the project includes the demolition of 3 buildings, including the former Government Printing Office of 2-4 Salamanca Place. The building is described as ‘a rare intact Tasmanian example of the Interwar Art Deco style’ and a challenge is being mounted against its demolition.
