Old AMP building, Circ Quay When built in 1962, was at vanguard of towers breaking city’s 150ft (47m) height limit, that was in place between 1912-57. Now people look back on this enduring @peddlethorp design with admiration & a touch of nostalgia, recognised today as heritage @cityofsydney #ampbuilding #oldampbuilding #officetower #circularquay #alfredstreet #ptwarchitects #sydneyskyscrapers #sydneysfirstskyscraper #sydneyheightlimit #150footheightlimit #sydneymodernism #curtainwall #curvedfacade #modernheritage #docomomo #sydneyarchitecture #architecture
