This study is of a selection of office buildings located in the Central Business District of Melbourne which have the same construction system: curtain wall. Author Marika Neustupny explores how the curtain wall surface of the selected buildings are percieved and understood, looking at the relationship between construction, program, location, history and experience. In this sense, Curtain Call is an elaboration of a specific architectural design culture of the 1950s and 1960s.
