Truss Design In Melbourne – The QVM Winter Night Market
A few of the Klopfer Dobos crew and foodie adventurers went to the Queen Victoria Market’s Winter Night Market, in a mid-week expedition to discover a world of street food vendors, spiced mulled wines and music in an otherwise dreary Melbourne winter evening.
As an engineering office, one of the more remarkable things about the Queen Victoria Market is its magnificent historic trusses. Notably, but not surprisingly, the trusses located over the large K and L Sheds (built in 1929, under which the market is held), were the #1 hot topic of the night; being admired and dissected by all.
Who said engineers are boring!
A general stroll around the market to soak in the atmosphere uncovered lots of opportunities to eat, drink and shop. There was also plenty of live entertainment on offer with an Afro-Cuban Latin jazz group and a bongo circles congregating around the open fires. After securing some (limited) seating, Justin and Miguel tried their hands at a bit of hat juggling with one of the roaming performers.
I truss a good time was had by all.
