Tasmanian Brutalsim - Bold Beauty

Tasmania has quite a number of significant Brutalist buildings, many being Government offices and institutions. This is one such example, the bold lines and angles are wonderful for photography. The odd window has always intrigued me...I love brutalism and its strong bold abstract qualities.

  1. Agreed... the bold lines and abstract qualities hit the viewer right in the eyes. My only concern is that the original creators of the title Brutalist Architecture, or Soviet Brutalism, were being politically derogatory. It reminds me of the term Fauvism for exciting young artists that older critics called wild beasts.
