Description

British Medical Association House is located on Macquarie Street, Sydney. The building was completed in 1930 and was designed by Australian architects Joseph Charles Fowell and Kenneth McConnel. The building is in the Art Deco style and features six large armoured knights holding shields bearing the BMA emblem on the upper floors. Looking down over the entrance to BMA House are six sculptures resembling gargoyles (unlike real gargoyles these sculptures are not functional).
