Sydney’s brutalist architecture, characterized by raw concrete and brick, emerged in the late 1950s, revolutionizing the city’s skyline. These ambitious, handcrafted structures like Sirius, the Sydney Masonic Centre, UTS Tower, and the Sydney Opera House showcased the movement’s radical roots. In “Sydney Brutalism,” design writer Heidi Dokulil delves into this architectural style’s international influences, architects, and impact on the city. Amid recent concerns over the demolition of the Sirius building, this book celebrates and explores Sydney’s bold brutalist structures, offering insights into their significance and contemporary influence with striking photography.
