A selection of the tools fitted to a jack hammer to achieve your concrete finish. From left to right: tool for lighter pointing, roller comb for medium texture, or for a heavier textured finish a bush hammer or comb chisel. Knowing your finish and then selecting the right tool was fundamental as no mistakes were permissible.

Concrete connoisseurs, come forth - we're thrilled to stock the brand new book, Sydney Brutalism: Lost and Legacy Projects, by Glenn Harper. It's fresh from showing at the MCA Zine Fair, and follows a photo essay of modern masterpieces, arguing for their heritage value. Glenn's also contributed to the Brutalist Sydney Map, with a walking tour of the harbour city's architectural icons.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Searching through the Marcel Breuer Digital Archives, held by Syracuse University USA, reveals design sketches of his only Australian project. Built in Sydney this is the former Torin Corporation Building (1976) by Marcel Breuer and Herbert Beckhard, in association with Harry Seidler and Associates. Breuer never visited Sydney and trusted Siedler and his office to undertake the necessary site supervision. #archdaily #archlover #archunter #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #Modernism #midcenturymodern #architecture_australia #modernist #modernist_architecture #brutal #brutalism #brutal_architecture #brutalist #brutalist_architecture #brutalistarchitecture #brutal_project_sydney #Byrea #sydneybrutalist #moderncentury

Listed but not illustrated on @bluecrowmaps ' most recent venture Brutalist Sydney Map, is Davidson High School, Davidson (1974) by the NSW Government Architect with J McHutchinson, D Anderson and R Powell as Project Architects. This 'Study 3 School' was a model school built across NSW that considered a new functional approach to educational planning in the Brutalist aesthetics. This and other least know gems are highlighted in this map. #archdaily #archlover #archunter #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #Modernism #midcenturymodern #architecture_australia #modernist #modernist_architecture #brutal #brutalism #brutal_architecture #brutalist #brutalist_architecture #brutalistarchitecture #brutal_project_sydney #Byrea #sydneybrutalist #moderncentury #brutalistsydneymap

Exposed concrete, purpose built bricks and a series of spatially complex 'pedestrian streets' characterise the largest brutalist building built in Sydney. This is Westmead Hospital, including Teaching Hospital, Dental Hospital and Coroner's Court, Westmead (1977-1980) designed by NSW Government Architect with R Bonthorne. The white coloured metal balustrading to a walkway under the auditorium is not original. #archdaily #archlover #archunter #architecturedetail #architecturelovers #Modernism #midcenturymodern #architecture_australia #modernist #modernist_architecture #brutal #brutalism #brutal_architecture #brutalist #brutalist_architecture #brutalistarchitecture #brutal_project_sydney #sydneybrutalist #Byrea #moderncentury

You know I love my brutalist concrete buildings and I've been wanting to shoot this carpark for a little while now, it's in the area I work so I pass it quite often but finally got around to it today on my day off. Still trying to find some info on who designed or built it, all I know is that it's the Kogarah Train station car park, in Sydney. Nice piece of brutalist architecture.
