Building 87 - ID was here.
Once home to the RMIT industrial design program, RMIT Building 87 is no more. Above the Australia Post store on the corner of Elizabeth and A'Beckett Streets was home to the program from the mid 1990s till 2010. The program began in Building 2, was briefly in Gossard Building 49, then 87, and now 440 Elizabeth Street, Building 88.
End of an era. Building 87 torn down recently.
Gone. RMIT Building 87 is no more.
