I cannot say I particularly like Brutalism as a style, but it is interesting nonetheless. Melbourne is apparently not particulary rich in Brutalist buildings compared to other cities. Here are some pics I shot yesterday....
Harold Holt Memorial Swimming Pool (Kevin Borland & Daryl Jackson 1967)
Edgar Street, Malvern
St Kilda Public Library (Enrico Taglietti 1973)
150 Carlisle Street, St Kilda
National Gallery of Victoria (Roy Grounds - 1960s)
St Kilda Road, South Yarra
(more pics to come....)
Plumbing Trades Employees Union of Australia Building (Graeme Gunn 1970)
52 Victoria Street, Melbourne
Faculty of Engineering (c.1965)
Grattan Street, University of Melbourne
Metropolitan Fire Brigade
456 Albert Street, East Melbourne
