Another real-life heptagon!


I found this photo by Steven Pam, entitled 7, of the dome in the former Melbourne Magistrates Court in Melbourne, Australia. It makes me happy to see an example of a regular heptagon used in architecture. According to Wikipedia the original court was opened in 1914, but moved to Williams Street in 1995. In poking around the web, it looks like this might be the building on the northwest corner of Russell and LaTrobe streets. (There are some pictures of the outside here.)

    A couple of minor corrections:

    It’s William Street, not Williams.

    It’s La Trobe Street, not LaTrobe.

    PS I work very near the corner of those two streets.
