Upon her throne, she sits

About the project

"The Queen Victoria Building (or QVB), is a late nineteenth-century building designed by the architect George McRae in the central business district of Sydney, Australia. The Romanesque Revival building was constructed between 1893 and 1898 and underwent remodelling and suffered decay until its restoration and return to its original use in the late twentieth century."
The imposing sandstone structure decorated by faded emerald domes and guarded by stone statues, hides some of the best retail Sydney has to offer. Inside, it's just as glorious, form and function meet as the old houses the new and at the southern end, in heart of Sydney, the queen sits, forever frozen in bronze and looking over her loyal subjects as they bounce from cafe to retail in a matter of seconds.

This is an exploration of the grandeur that is the QVB.
