Last view of the garden in the Westgate Carpark

The Westgate car park has been resisting its demise every inch of the way, but last week the workmen finally cut through to the lightwell where the tiny garden was. There's still a curious garden-like effect, with the steel reinforcing bars forming a vine-like tangle over the concrete rubble, and the balconies (exposed to sun finally) overlooking a mysterious inner space, where demolition machinery lurks.

There's even a man who waters the rubble - to keep the dust down. Those corner ziggurats are lingering, presumably to keep the structure stable.
