The Art Centre Spire - St Kilda Road Melbourne

Hi V ... This is the spire which sits atop the Melbourne Art Centre.
The spire is illuminated with roughly 6,600 metres (21,653 feet)
of optic fibre tubing, 150 metres (492 feet) of neon tubing on the mast
and 14,000 incandescent lamps on the spire's skirt. The metal webbing of
the spire is influenced by the billowing of a ballerina's tutu
and the 
Eiffel Tower. Cheers J.
