Perth + Brutalism + Iwan Iwanoff + Curtin University




Yes, I know. But this really is the last of the Perth brutalism series. Nicely capped off with a tribute to Iwan Iwanoff, all of the photos today were taken at Curtin University - Perth's own little slice of brutalism in the burbs. Just around the corner from the Iwanoff sculpture, is a tribute to the other great heroes that also died in 1986 - Lionel Ritchie, Billy Ocean, and Falco.

Now, there is only one type of building that has more of an impact, and looks better, than a concrete brutalist box - a crumbling, abandoned building. Nothing beats a crumbling building. Nothing. Hands down. So, enjoy the last of Perth brutalist architecture (really!) you will see on this blog for some time (probably).

Coming soon - Perth's abandoned buildings...

excellent photos and blog on the perth Brutalist movement of the 60s.

have you considered doing a write up on the Jan ter Horst house (20 Moran Street Beaconsfeild)? not only is it classic 60s Brutalist but it also has a very interesting story to go with it.
if you want to know more about it i can help you out as i know the architect who designed it in the first place

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.
