Kevin O'Sullivan told of the history and cultural significance of four purpose-built, government buildings in the Adelaide CBD: Wakefield House, the former Motor Registration Centre, the Education Department Building and the Forensic Sciences Centre. Collectively they represent the progressive governmental, social and architectural confidence of their time.
