Brutalist Sydney.

In its ruggedness and lack of concern to look comfortable or easy, Brutalism is a reaction by a younger generation to the lightness, optimism, and frivolity of some 1930s and 1940s architecture. In one critical appraisal Brutalism was posited not as a style, but as the expression of an atmosphere among architects of moral seriousness. 

I’ve realised that most of the (modern) architecture I notice is “Brutalist”.
