If you’ve ever admired the brutalism that adorns Melbourne, Australia, you might have wanted to find more. Luckily, Blue Crow Media have you covered with their Concrete Melbourne Map. The compact map showcases the city’s brutalist architecture with 50 buildings detailed on the reverse.

Everything from the Cardinal Knox Centre in East Melbourne (which controversially replaced Saint Patrick’s College in 1971) to National Bank House, in the heart of the city, is covered on Concrete Melbourne Map.

Shout out to Glenn Harper (he also took the photos for Blue Crow Media’s Brutalist Sydney Map), and Clinton Weaver for the photography. The black-and-white shots are superb.
