Adelaide, Australia

A card from the far away Australia....well, far away from my spot....if you are in Japan, it probably aint that away for you :)

The card shows the Adelaide Festival Centre, a place for people, the arts and ideas to come together.

It is distinguished by its three silvery-white geometric dome roofs and its plaza consisting of lego block-like structures to the south and lies on a 45 degree angle to the city's grid.
It was built in three parts from April 1970 to 1980. The main building, the Festival Theatre, was completed in 1973. While the Festival Centre may not be an internationally recognizable icon like the Opera House, its acoustics are considered far superior, one of the best in Australia.
