I have just spent three days on a commission photographing the world's tallest student accommodation tower in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. And I can say without hesitation that I want to go back to being a student. When I was studying at university we had no facilities like students do today. Those lucky enough to have secured their room in this tower get nothing but the best. 24 hour concierge service, level 39 sky lounge to chill out and watch the sun go down over the CBD, level 4 facilities including ping pong and billiards whilst watching fox sports on the big screen or if the day had been stressful fall into the pool and chill out while your snags cook away on the BBQ's. Maybe you want to hit the gym whilst waiting for a text to say that your washing machine is finished or just find any number of quiet locations around the place to just read or surf the free internet.
