Round 10:
The Top versus The Shot Tower
What:
(The unofficial title)

[Top]

Top

[Shot Tower]

the Shot Tower

Where: Bourke Street, just west of Elizabeth Street. Inside Melbourne Central shopping centre
Details: Apparently serving no useful purpose other than being decorative, this top shaped thing adorns a new complex opposite the GPO.

What on Earth was the architect thinking, you may ask yourself. Certainly, that's what I've been wondering.

Maybe he or she was just bored.

Apparently still here mostly because the developers weren't allowed to knock it down, this 100-ish year old tower almost singlehandedly turns Melbourne Central from being just another monolithic shopping centre into something almost interesting.
Result: The Shot Tower romped it in, surprise surprise.
