Wood is used here to shade the Gallery of Modern Art Building against the harsh Queensland sun.
I like this. Thanks for calling in to Whitby. Yes, perhaps Cook's humble origins are behind the lack of official recognition. Best wishes for your blogging. I'm not quite fully retired, so am wary of the "black hole" of reading or writing too many, but it's great fun to share what you enjoy.
This short of timber venetians on the outside of buildings is all the rage in the trendier suburbs of Sydney, too. It can look most attractive, however, I do wonder how it will weather after 20 years.
I agree totally with Julie: what will it look like in certainly less than 20 years? Julie is being too generous. I think it looks "crappy".
wooden sun shades, this is different and I will bet quite a maintenance issue but effective to keep sun out
Wooden Solar shades proves to be more resistant to sunlight due to its tough coating.
