Located in the grounds of Richmond High School, Lennox Street, Richmond, NSW.
In 1977 a circular reinforced concrete structure known as a binishell was constructed at Richmond High School. The structure used low air pressure to lift and shape the hollow concrete form. The technology was invented in the 1960s by Dr. Dante Bini.
The binishell was renamed in 1982 in honour of Mr Milton Alston’s 40 years of service to the school. In 1994 the structure was covered in red plastic to form the world’s largest ‘Red Nose’ to raise money for research into Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Support of this cause by the school commenced in 1989 and in 2001 the MAC was painted red to create a permanent ‘red nose’.
