Not Brutal Enough

No architecture for a while but this…

I’m a big fan of Brutalism, but this hodgepodge in Wellington Street is sad to say rubbish. Especially the colourbond addition. Nursing or something.

    Why get sentimental about all this old stuff when it is most properly replaced by 12-storey residential mixed-use infill development ?

    Good brutalism is hard to find. Crap brutalism is everywhere in our universities, especially Curtin and Murdoch. Studying at Murdoch is like studying in a concentration camp.
