    Sydney, Australia.

    Title reads 'New Building Method Helps Pedestrians'.

    Several long shots of new office blocks in Sydney, Australia. Various shots showing how the large buildings are supported by several "gathered columns" - four columns gathered to one base. The columns give more room at pavement level for pedestrians and also widen out at the top to support these large buildings.
