The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre feels like it was designed to delight construction watchers like us - VCCC is a big favourite for UM forum users with images frequently posted in the Carlton & Parkville forum thread.  The image below is from earlier on in August and by editor Mark Baljak.

The Australia 108 forum thread is likely to be referenced a lot over the coming years - primarily because it's dedicated to an enormous project.  Ryan took this image of the site on the 13th of August.
