Sydney Architecture

During a walk down to the water front in Sydney these buildings caught my eye - rather different in style I think.  Later in the walk we passed the Ian Thorpe Swimming Centre.







Later that afternoon I saw these layers of buildings while walking on the harbour bridge.  I have never seen more 'box like' dwellings anywhere!  It seems many of these units were empty - maybe people like curves!  Although what first caught my eye were the three styles of building in the view.


You can can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

Great series, Stewart! I like the view on the last photo. Happy Monday, enjoy your day!

I think I like the older buildings more than the new, but both are interesting.
Have a great week!

Looks like you captured some old ghost signs there in the first shot.

They look like concrete block housing that was built for a certain type of housing..Didn't Sydney host the Olympics years ago?? Could it have been Olympic housing?? Great shots..

Some very different views of Sydney there. I like the angles you have used.

I certainly only recognise the opera house in those photos. I was not blogging in the times we visited Sydney, maybe I would have been more observant if I had of been! Have a good week Diane

I like the Ian Thorpe building much better than those "boxes."

Well, if I had my choice and that first building was apartments with an elevator, that is where I would want to live. My second choice would be the last one because of the view of the opera house. That is pretty spectacular.

Interesting to see how times and tastes changes architecture. Can`t imagine that those flats were mostly empty...with a view like that?

This is so interesting ... You never see pictures of what's in back of that iconic Sydney landmark ...very interesting glimpses of the big City here!

Great views of architectural design. Love the last shot particularly! That opera house just adds so much to any shot! :-)

Although I like old buildings much better than new, I appreciate the creativity of the modern ones. Nice pics Stewart!
