Sometimes I think that if you’re going to post-process... you should #overprocess... I like this shot, but concede I could have gone a little easier on the slider.

I should post this in colour too, the wall at the bottom is an awesome pale blue colour.

The Former Hoffman Brickworks in #Brunswick was the largest and most technologically advanced brickworks in Victoria during the land boom of the 1880s, and maintained a leading position in the industry during the first half of the twentieth century. The current owners have lodged an application to demolish two significant remnant buildings within the complex – the former brick press shed and engine house. The brick press shed dates in part to the 1880s, containing nine brick presses built in the 1920s, 1960s and 1970s. To view the plans, and to lodge a submission, visit our bio.

(@stickyinstitute, p7, photo by @tatiana_c_c_s) No one is really happy that the #subway might be closed and we might be evicted. This is their livelihood, and the people behind the shops rely on these businesses.

They designed their plans to cause the least amount of damage upstairs and I understand that but – when you come down and realise that there are people with well-established businesses here – it changes things.

I’m not against the new loop as a principle, I think it’ll be great once it’s done, but I’d like for it to not go directly through our shop. Works won’t start until 2019, so we have about a year to work it out. (https://talesofbrickandmortar.wordpress.com/2018/01/04/sticky-institute-est-2001/)

On our walk today found this old gem
Never had time to make it in on a weekday? We will be open for 3 special Saturday’s this summer! On the 13 and 27th of Jan and the 10th of Feb we will be open from 10.00am - 4.00pm. Get the kids fingerprinted, or send them on a detective trail! #weareopen #summersaturdays #summersaturdays18 #open #thingstodomelbourne #melbourne #tourismmelbourne #visitmelbourne #museum #activity #melbournehistory #melbourneheritage #exploremelbourne #history #specialevents
(@stickyinstitute, p6, photos by @tatiana_c_c_s, see link for full story in bio) There’s a plan at the moment for the @VicMetroTunnel to be built through our shop.

It’s still early stages so we’re trying hard for that to not happen. And, with the #arcade itself, the #architecture is brilliant so we don’t want to see it damaged.

Part of the floor is gilded, it has #brass lettering, mainly original #tiles, #marble #pillage, the weird lights that buzz all the time and they don’t make curved windows like the ones here anymore.  And with the seats, shops and the #galleryspace, it is one of the few places where you can hang out and do nothing.

But the new loop and the old loop are meant to connect by a walkway. To make that #walkway behind the ticket barrier, the eastern wall would be knocked down and the ticket barrier would need to be moved forward.

I think at that point everything behind the barrier would become Metro’s problem. So you might not be able to access these shops without touching on.

And if they knock down the wall; us, A Touch of Paris and @thecatsmeowindependentclothing (the first three shops on the left hand side) would be evicted. All of these businesses could be at the mercy of Metro, and architecturally the arcade would be ruined. You would lose the #symmetry, the shape and maybe these existing shops would be replaced by shiny new shops.

We think of them as a set, so to destroy one shop is to ruin the whole arcade. And if you look at the arcade from here, it’s beautiful.

(@stickyinstitute, p5, photo by @tatiana_c_c_s) The scrappier a zine is, the more we tend to #love it.

And, with some zines, there are only 20 or so that exist. You’ll keep coming back in the hope that they’ve put out something #new and, while you are dong that, you might find something else that you like. No one wants just one thing so making and buying zines becomes quite a #personal experience.

It’s all culturally significant, worth having and zines are worth something. You don’t have to go through an #editor or a publisher. It’s you and your idea, you make it as well as you can and that’s all there is.

And every once in a while you’ll find a zine and go "#holyshit." It’s a small piece of #art that you can have in your home. (https://talesofbrickandmortar.wordpress.com/2018/01/04/sticky-institute-est-2001/)

(@stickyinstitute, p4, photos by @tatiana_c_c_s) Beck: I used to come in as a teenager and thought it was so cool to hang out in a shop that was literally #underground.

My friends and I were artistically inclined teenagers and, when we got into it in 2002, I didn’t really leave. I started volunteering in 2008 and became a coordinator around 2011. It also looked pretty similar back then. There are now more #posters on the wall, and the #origami on the ceiling came in bit by bit.

Zines have become more mainstream as #digitalart gained popularity. There’s a #throwback to doing something traditional, with people loving the tactility of zines and being surrounded by physical objects. The more digital we get, the more people want something they can hold and look at.

It’s nice to have a #comic rather than right-clicking and saving it on a computer. (https://talesofbrickandmortar.wordpress.com/2018/01/04/sticky-institute-est-2001/)

(@stickyinstitute, p3, photos by @tatiana_c_c_s) At the start this was a place for zines to be sold.

There used to be a little table in the middle of the store – with one machine – where you could make badges, but now there’s something like a dining table with 12 chairs, four badge machines, five #typewriters, #stationary and everything you need. The space evolves as it needs to.

We get a lot of visits from surprised business people who are like, “wow this is new, isn’t it,” despite the fact that we’ve been here almost 16 years. @rmituniversity has built us into one of their #arts programs, and we run a fair every year inside the Melbourne Town Hall which is a huge #community event.

We archive one of every #Australian zine at the @library_vic so they also have a huge zine collection.  Our demographic ranges from kids to older people who make zines. If I had to narrow it down, our core demographic is mainly university age but it goes either way. 
Sticky is a singular kind of shop in the world in that there’s no other place that just sells and caters to zines as a working and a retail space.

We’ve become an #institution, and the fact that we are located underground is part of what makes us, us. (https://talesofbrickandmortar.wordpress.com/2018/01/04/sticky-institute-est-2001/)

(@stickyinstitute, p2, photos by @tatiana_c_c_s) Zines have always been popular with #punk fandom.

In certain circles they’ve always held cultural significance and impact. It evolved from #anarchist #pamphlets but there has been a bit of a shift from heavily political and punk zines to more general stuff. You now get a lot of #artbooks, poetry and independent #comics.

Zines are certainly becoming more popular. Every year, 20 or so teenagers wander in and they never leave. They love the fact that they can buy a $2 #comic which changes their life, or they can tear out pages of their diary and print it as a form of self expression.

We take everything on consignment, and we receive a 20 per cent commission which is the smallest amount that allows us to keep the store – which is independently run by volunteers – going.

Anyone can use the space and we’ll help people use the typewriters, badge machines and we can show them how to make a zine. It’s #DIY and #grassroots. The whole point is to show people that they have the ability to make things themselves.

We don’t want to have creative control over their process. (https://talesofbrickandmortar.wordpress.com/2018/01/04/sticky-institute-est-2001/)

(@stickyinstitute, est 2001, photo by @tatiana_c_c_s) Platform Artists Group used to run independent art shows in the white boxes near us, and where we are used to be their office.

A couple of people got together and asked if they could use the office space – when they weren’t doing office things – to sell zines.

They had 3-4 zines at the time but eventually Sticky got a lot bigger, Platform became a lot smaller – it’s gone now – we took over the lease and kept the space.

Now it’s exploding, and the space is as tight as we can get it. (https://talesofbrickandmortar.wordpress.com/2018/01/04/sticky-institute-est-2001/)

So glad this rocket still exists. 🚀 The current owner is convinced it was once part of a playground/food shop built to service the Moorabbin Drive-in theatre which closed in the 80s (the site was bought by Coca-Cola). Sounds conceivable, although the drive-in was positioned off Chesterville Rd on Keys Rd. I grew up nearby. Anyone have more info on this beauty? I read somewhere that the original business was called Rocket Heating, but I like the drive-in theory better!⠀

These 140 year-old, Victorian-era stables are located in the narrow back streets of #windsor, and are an amazing reminder of the #history of inner Melbourne. Unfortunately they are not presently #heritage protected under the #stonnington planning scheme, even though at least 2 heritage experts have recommended they be protected. The owner of these #historic buildings is seeking to take advantage of their lack of current protection and intends to #demolish them in the very near future and replace them with a 3-storey concrete carpark! If this sounds bad to you, please help us #protect these #historic buildings by sharing this post and voicing your concerns with @stonningtoncouncil @samhibbinsmp @nationaltrustvic @built_heritage_vic

One of my favourite #buildings in #Melbourne.
The Belvedere, designed in 1928 by architect WH Merritt. The building sits at the corner of the Esplanade and Robe street, #StKilda and featuring an exuberant corner belvedere designed in the #SpanishMission style. This is portrayed externally by the use of render work, Cordoba profile terra cotta tiles and decorative metal grillage.

i had a chat with simon from @apm_powerhouse today, who is fairly keen to raise awareness of the old australian paper mill boiler house in alphington, which was on -then-off the heritage register, and is at risk of being demolished. Simon's idea is that it should be kept as a historical remnant, with a clever new use. he seems open minded about what the use is, but has the idea is that it should involve the community. I think that sounds pretty good. anyway, i promised him a sketch, and maybe an idea about how to access the site and emphasize the connection with the yarra.

Architect Joseph Reed / 1880

Incredibly crazy to think this beauty was considered for demolition at various times in the 1950s and 60s .

One of the most spectacular renovations of a former industrial building is the home of Barcelona architect Ricardo Bofill. Once a cement factory, now a home.

Help save the APM Powerhouse so we can get a similar result for Melbourne's industrial palace on the Yarra. Please sign and share the petition:

The Campbell #Arcade beneath Degraves Street has been a refuge for arty types and tourists to Melbourne’s CBD, but will soon become a ghost town to make way for the $11 millon Melbourne Metro Tunnel. Owners of the arcade’s stores have been told their leases will end in July 2019 to allow for the building of the twin nine kilometre tunnels. Tristan Davies, president of lobby group @melbourne_heritage_action believes the new station plans will ‘destroy the arcade’ which he described as an ‘intact example of 1940s architecture.’

Thursday night with the artisan's guild a visit to Ravenswood Mansion in Ivanhoe, l have not been there for many years since working on the building. I must say it looks amazing with every thing finished, it is a real credit to the owners David and Magaret, with no expense spared, just perfect.

The Melbourne Fish Market was another architectural marvel on the Yarra that was demolished way before it's time. Imagine Flinders Street with this still there. Don't let that happen to the APM Power Station!

See text below from http://marvmelb.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/melbournes-wonderful-demolished.html?m=1 'Of all of Melbourne's vanished buildings, this one is probably the most spectacular. Built in 1890, for more than 50 years this was used as a commercial market for fish and other fresh produce. In the lead up to the Olympic games in 1956 it was decided to demolish a number of Melbourne's older buildings in order to 'modernise' the look of the city. Sadly, incredibly, this was one of the buildings to go, although the demolition was not completed until 1959. It was replaced - sadly! incredibly! - with a carpark'
