Brutalism in Perth - the saga continues.

A psycho-analyst would have a field day explaining what makes people love, and hate, brutalist architecture. Suffice to say, its rough, raw, geometrical, edgy, and, well -  brutal. Perth has more than its fair share of brutalist structures, much to the pleasure of many locals. Brutalist buildings, once you see them in real life, are burnt into your mind. Not many buildings can make that claim. This will be the last part of the Perth Brutalism feature (for now).... until I win lotto, and build a house so brutal that the concrete will bleed. 

In the meantime, enjoy this Wellington Street gem. Once known as Consolidated House.

Awesome, I'm going to make a point of visiting these whilst in Perth.
You missed the KGB headquarters at East Perth station, department of public transport I think it is.

Hi there. Feel free to comment, but keep this in mind:
This is a happy place, lets keep it that way, together. In this day and age of spam and idiots, I need to check every comment before it gets published. If it's now 2013, odds are I'm on a tropical beach somewhere in South East Asia, or possibly checking out some abandoned Soviet-era architecture in Eastern Europe, and maybe your comment won't appear for some time. But leave one anyway! If you have a personal message for me, I won't publish the comment, so feel free to submit it here. Thanks for checking out 6000TIMES, and have a nice day.
