What both Flynn Primary School and Perth Council Offices illustrate is the ease with which Australia’s modernist inheritance is held hostage to short-term politics. Doubtless in 60 years attitudes will have changed, and buildings such as these will be prized as brave modern ambassadors of Australia, but will Flynn Primary School still be around to see the day?
