ICI Building – 1958 by Sir Osborn McCutcheon (of Bates Smart McCutcheon)
As the first international style skyscraper in Australia, the ICI Building lead the way in changing the shape of Australia’s major urban centres. Designed by Sir Osborn McCutcheon (of Bates Smart McCutcheon), it was closely modeled on the best of corporate design taking place in America and symbolised progress, modernity, efficiency and corporate power in the postwar era.
It is one of the few postwar office buildings to be found on the Heritage Register and is home to Bates Smart Melbourne offices.
