  A round peg in a square hole

Australia Square isn't square, it's round. Then again, the square is square. Actually, what happened was that when this (then very tall) round building was completed it was called Australia Square which made it unforgettable because the building was actually round and different to anything else in Sydney.
Its lift speed was legendary and it became the place to view Sydney from in the latter half of the 20th century.
These days of course, it's just another tall building in a city full of them but, I, for one, still like it.
