David Walsh is clearly very interested in architecture.
It all started (maybe) when he saw the old Snow's Dry Cleaners in Glenorchy, designed by Esmond Dorney—a post-war visionary, and a cult hero among the young'uns for his inspired use of light and space. Dorney went to university in Melbourne, got expelled for racing cars on campus, and worked with the Burley Griffins. At twenty-three (young) he established his own practice (tricky), and moved to Hobart (brave). He stayed there for the rest of his life. His one-bedroom namesake pavilion is designed by Fender Katsalidis.
