AD 1962; Arch. A. Eggarter B.D.A | one of my favorites. Brick cube on one side, flat roofed - pointy roof on the right. A little bit of concrete and honeycomb for the staircase. New frames though. Also a Litfaßsäule to its flank

TransACT House (formerly ACT.TAB, ACT Totalizator Agency Board HQ)
470 Northbourne Avenue, Dickson ACT 2602

The building was originally the Head Quarters for the ACT Totalizator Agency Board and nicknamed the "TAB Mahal". From an article by Ross Andrews from the Canberra Times, December 19, 1979, 'The TAB building includes a seven-storey tower and a three-level annex that contains its five Perkin Elmers computer systems and micro-processers'. Today the annex is still used as a computer centre.

It seems that Kahn had no notion of the human scale, even his sketches from abroad showed no sign of human life.
Glorious ruins are what his buildings will one day be.

PAMPĀĻI. KOLKHOZ HERITAGE
The word 'pampāļi' in the Latvian language is the dialect word (provincialism) for potatoes. But it has another meaning or connotation - as a generic derogatory appellation for a distant, rural place where some hillbillies, rednecks are living. So I was truly intrigued - how does this place really looks like.  And there were three different ... feelings .. or conditions which I revealed by moving through this place. This building - the headquarters of the kolkhoz (built in 1987) and the previous building (former water mill) - it's one condition or situation - the one which doesn't refer to the Latvian notion of Pampāļi as the place of rednecks. Rather - the center of kolkhoz which was prosperous enough, developing this kind of "rural urbanism" with the help of such an architecture, trying to create both an icon and organize the public space in rural conditions.

PAMPĀĻI. KOLHOZA CENTRS
Pampālis ir viens no apvidvārdiem (ap Liepāju) kartupeļa apzīmēšanai, bet šim vārdam daudzskaitlī latviešu valodā ir cita, plašāk zināma konotācija. Apmeklējot pirmo reizi Pampāļus gribējās saprast, cik ļoti tas atbilst patiesībai. Virzoties cauri kādreizējā kolhoza ciematam nācās sajust trīs dažādus Pampāļus. Pirmie - kādreizējās pārbūvētās ūdensdzirnavas + šī ēka (kolhoza kantoris, izpildkomiteja un klubs) kopumā atgādina kādreiz diezgan labklājīga kolhoza centru. Mani arvien pievelk šīs 80. gadu kolhozu centru ēkas, kurās jaušami strukturālistu iedvesmoti pilsētbūvnieciski centieni, tāds lauku urbānisms, tiecoties radīt izteiksmīgu un daudzfunkcionālu ēku, gan arī kvalitatīvu publisko telpu lauku ciematā.  Arh.: I.Šņore, M.Zeibārte, 1987.

Ernö Lestyàns’ 1969 towering dominant Transformer Station soaring above its neighbours on Dob Utca 10 in Budapest. Photo with thanks to @cpdbishop. It’s a cracking example of brick modernism. Lestyàn (1925-1994) born in Nagyvárad, Romania, was brought up in Budapest where he worked as an architect and industrial designer. This building, one of three transformer buildings in the city, which was largely ignored for decades has now become part of the discussion about Budapests’ architectural legacy in a city stuffed with beautiful highly decorative buildings. Arguably as a symbol of the period when this Transformer House was built it definitely merits inclusion. The building has recently received a lot of attention as another of the Transformer buildings had to contend with a new hotel being built next door, in the process altering some of its facade despite the protests of conservationists, who felt the architect’s vision would be altered in the process. His granddaughter Bence led the campaign to protect the buildings integrity. Are you local? It would be really interesting to hear updates from you and your view of the design. Add on thanks to @emi1ymorris too!
