Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Grace Building in Sydney, Australia was designed by Morrow & Gordon and built by Kell & Rigby during the late 1920s and opened in 1930 by Grace Brothers, the Australian department store magnates, as their headquarters. "The building was designed to use the first two storeys in the manner of a department store. The remaining storeys were intended to provide rental office accommodation for importers and other firms engaged in the softgoods trade."Inspired by the neo-Gothic Tribune Tower in Chicago-headquarters of the Chicago Tribune-the building was of the Art Deco architectural style and had state-of-the-art innovations and facilities for the time.show more
