Awarded the Sir John Sulman Medal, the MLC Centre, 25 Martin Place, is considered to be one of Seidler’s “most definitive works.” Standing at a height of 228 metres with 67 storeys, the MLC Centre “is one of the world’s tallest reinforced concrete buildings and was one of the tallest buildings in the world outside North America at the time of its completion. The MLC Centre was Sydney’s tallest office building from 1977 to 1992.” Ref: Wiki.
