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.

    The rust plays a nice contrast against the weeds and mission brown panels.

    Not even the bore water stains can save it.

    it starts out well at the front, but sadly falters beyond this.

    Would it look better in Federation Green?

    A facade only a DOCOMOMO could love …

    … but despite some recent major losses there is still quite a lot of good brutalist architecture remaining in perth both in team x and regional style variants .

    The WASON building
    is now the Education Centre of RPH
    and remember Brutalism and Medicine go hand in hand.

    I like it . It s modern

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

    Nurses can learn what they need from home in the office or on the street .

    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.
