what's worth saving?

Sad to hear that this building is slated for demolition, as I recall it well, having spend a good part of my late teens and early twenties crossing the Harbour bridge passing it.

Brutalist styling isn't for everyone, but Ive always been impressed by how simple the actual design is and how it's modular nature informed a facade that managed to blend into the surrounding streetscape. Maybe it's because I'd seen it for so long that it never felt an imposition which is so often the characterisation of Brutalist buildings, but it's a simple form that's articulated really well in my eyes.
