Available in Sydney by 1972, the book ‘Civilia’ (1971) presented a utopian city defined by plazas, car free streets and recreational waterways edged by brutalist megastructures. Published in London by The Architectural Press and incorporating many evocative montages, this book correlated a brutalist urban city with English Picturesque. How could the architects of Sydney, wanting new socially derived urban forms to replace a congested and polluted city, resist this utopia? #archdaily #archlover #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #architectureaustralia #architecture_australia #Modernism #modernist_architecture #brutalism #brutalist #brutal_architecture #brutalist_architecture #brutalist_project_sydney

Advances in concrete technology, enabling utilitarian infrastructure projects to be built across NSW, took place well before 1960 when concrete became a popular material within many civic Sydney projects. Using slip form concrete technology are the many grain silos of country NSW (and perhaps Australia) as exemplified by Holmwood Silo, Holmwood NSW, dating to 1935. #archdaily #archlover #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #architectureaustralia #architecture_australia #Modernism #modernist_architecture #brutalism #brutalist #brutal_architecture #brutalist_architecture #brutalist_project_sydney
By the mid-1980s, the less romantic views of the City of Sydney, for example east along King Street, portrayed a city dominated by buildings in the Brutalist doctrine. This image, taken in 1985, heroically featured the former American Express Building (1976) by John Andrews International. #archdaily #archlover #archunter #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #Modernism #midcenturymodern #architecture_australia #modernist #modernist_architecture #brutal #brutalism #brutal_architecture #brutalist #brutalist_architecture #brutalistarchitecture #brutal_project_sydney #Byrea
Celebrating the official opening of the Sydney Opera House 45 years ago. This image, taken by an amateur photographer in c. 1966, roughly coincides at a time when Jorn Utzon left Sydney never to see his project again. #archdaily #archlover #architecture #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #modern #Modernism #MidCentury #midcentury modern #architecture_australia #modernist #modernist_architecture #utzon #sydneyoperahouse #Sydney

Hammered rib concrete was a finish applied both in Sydney and Melbourne. Consider this distinctive Melbourne project: Commercial Offices (1974) by Chris and Immer Seddon. The cornice and paint finish are recent. #archdaily #archlover #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #architectureaustralia #architecture_australia #Modernism #modernist_architecture #brutalism #brutalist #brutal_architecture #brutalist_architecture #brutalist_project_sydney #sosbrutalism #concretemelbourne

This odd image, of Bankstown Square Shopping Mall, was taken by Andrew Andersons (former NSW Public Works employee) in 1985. Included in a published survey of Australia architecture, the monograph, ‘Australian Built: Responding to Place’ and sponsored by James Hardies (a major supplier of rolled steel projects at the time), considered ‘place making’ through the use of lightweight steelwork. If photographed differently this setting could have been used to promote a different view for the ongoing role of beton brute and precast concrete in Australia’s evolving urban realm. #archdaily #archlover #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #architectureaustralia #architecture_australia #Modernism #modernist_architecture #brutalism #brutalist #brutal_architecture #brutalist_architecture #brutalist_project_sydney #sosbrutalism
An interest in beton brut was certainly being explored in Australian architectural projects outside Sydney well before 1970. With oozy concrete used to articulate the structural frame, this is McCaughey Court, Ormond College, University of Melbourne, Parkville Vic (1965-1968) by Romberg and Boyd. The white paint is a recent finish. #archdaily #archlover #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #architectureaustralia #architecture_australia #Modernism #modernist_architecture #brutalism #brutalist #brutal_architecture #brutalist_architecture #brutalist_project_sydney #sosbrutalism #concretemelbourne
It's always a pleasure to work with @spaceandco ! This is the latest Space&Co shared office located on level 22, 8 Exhibition Street. The circa 1,700 sqm co-working office integrates modern office and industrial heritage vibes through the exposed ceiling, services and sealed concrete floors. A café is incorporated into this fit-out to bring out the cultural identity of Melbourne.

Designed by Jorn Utzon in 1957, the Sydney Opera House was indeed conceived for a very different and more urbane city. Image 1 (a photomontage of model onto view of the city) dates to 1959 and is taken from the professional journal ‘Constructional Review’ while image 2 (a contemporary view) is taken by Rafael Ben-Ari. #archdaily #archlover #architecture #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #modern #Modernism #MidCentury #midcentury modern #architecture_australia #modernist #modernist_architecture #utzon #sydneyoperahouse #Sydney

Encapsulating Sydney’s political climate and attitude towards late modern heritage are “The Awfulisers: Every night and every day, The Awfulisers workaway, Awfulising public places, Favourite things and little graces; Awfulising lovely treasures.....The parts of life we hold so dear: ‘Democratic’, clean and lawful, Awful, awful awful, awful. (Image taken from SMH, Saturday August 18, and with thanks to the cartoonist ‘Leunig’). #archdaily #archlover #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #architectureaustralia #architecture_australia #Modernism #modernist_architecture #brutalism #brutalist #brutal_architecture #brutalist_architecture #brutalist_project_sydney #sosbrutalism
European Oak feature wall ~ epic craftsmanship.

Modern yet referential; this view by the architects of the National Library, Canberra (1968) - Bunning and Madden - envisaged that the library would evolve and become a series of ‘temples’ facing Griffin’s Land Axis.

What’s better than a Lyndon Dadswell relief sculpture? Three Lyndon Dadswell relief sculptures, and in a row. Installed at the entry to RG Nenzies Building (University Library) to a building designed by J Scarborough and Partners in association with Collard Clarke and Jackson ANU, ACT, these relief sculptures date to 1963. #archdaily #archlover #and archunter #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #modern #Modernism #MidCentury #midcentury modern #architecture_australia #modernist #modernist_architecture

Now successfully refurbished, this late modern brutalist building was the venue for and indeed a demonstration of, this year’s National Trust and ICOMOS conference “Heritage on the edge: continuity with change in Canberra?”. While many Canberrans, like many in Sydney, are ‘on edge’ with the loss of so much modern heritage, you need not fear if projects like this can demonstrate that ‘purpose built’ modernism can adapt and continue to have value. Illustrated here is part of the eastern elevation to Research School of Biological Sciences (now RN Robertson Building), ANU Acton Campus, ACT (1972) by the Sydney based practice of Hely and Horne. #archdaily #archlover #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #architectureaustralia #architecture_australia #Modernism #modernist_architecture #brutalism #brutalist #brutal_architecture #brutalist_architecture #brutalist_project_sydney #sosbrutalism @canberra_modern
Late modern confidence: this is the redevelopment of the Darlington Campus University of Sydney featuring the School of Electrical Engineering (1966) by Ancher Mortlock and Woolley.

Now mostly demolished, this is the former public housing estate, Northbourne Avenue Canberra ACT (1959-1963) by Ancher Mortlock and Woolley. Demolished to make for new taller residential apartments with little to no consideration of the historic and/or social significance the site had. This loss is an issue now facing modern heritage all across Canberra; and this issue was discussed at yesterday’s National Trust and ICOMOS Symposium “Heritage on the Edge: Continuity with Change in Canberra?” A great and informative day had by all.
