Skylights

Skylights
At Commonwealth Place, on the foreshore of Lake Burley Griffin, there are two little purpose-built vendor stores. You can get coffee from one or hire those segway cycle-scooter things from the other. The stores are essentially boxes with an extended roof line to give some shelter for customers. The underside of the roofs are decorated with these suspended tubes, which serve as skylights.

Brian, Richard Boucher, Xata, stargazing..., William Sutherland and 10 other people have particularly liked this photo

Thanks Bev. :)
Not sure how to describe segways, or what to compare them to. You've probably seen them somewhere... They're a platform with a wheel on either side and a handle bar fitted on top of a pole-like thing, rising from the front, and there's a battery powered motor somewhere inside. Riders push the handle bar forward, back and sideways to control speed and direction (I think). They look a bit futuristic and people seem to enjoy riding them.

Thanks Enista.
I added this to the group as a architectural detail shot. They may only be vendor stores but they were designed.
