This view of the city skyline was taken from the National Art School in East Sydney. The 'structure' that dominates this skyline, dominates the city. In my title, I have called it 'Centrepoint Tower' and yet I hesitantly refer to it as a 'structure'. This is because the name keeps changing.
There are naming rights, you see. You pay enough and you get to name the structure. This sort of policy irritates me. I see the same with stadiums for football. I see the same with Grand Final winning 'cups' for football. Money speaks a powerful language, but it also speaks with forked tongue.
Centrepoint Tower has also been known as Sydney Tower, the AMP Tower, and now, Westfield Tower. I like the idea of Centrepoint Tower as I consider it situated on the central heart of European settlement of this ancient land: the point where the Tank Stream rose from a muddy swamp, where the Pitt Street Mall is today.
All views au contraire warmly welcomed.
