I'm not so sure that the cultural centre is brutalism is it? It's a bit late and it's also not really concrete... I would've called it modernist but then again I don't really know?I'm a sick little fan of Brutalism. Some of those buildings look bad, but I like quite a few. One of my favourite examples is the Queensland Performing Arts Centre/Museum/Art Gallery. Love it.
I don't know my Brutalist from my modernist from my whatsever cheapest to build in the sixties, but IMHO this is Melbournes ugliest building from it's good sideThe ugliest buildings in Australia, or just the ugliest in Melbourne?
