ARCHITECTURE OF NEW SOUTH WALES

In the state of NSW we have twentieth century buildings and structures that are greatly loved by the general public – including such icons as the 1930s Sydney Harbour Bridge and the 1950s Opera House. However, much of our most interesting architecture tends to go unnoticed.

An introduction to some of the state's architectural styles can be found in this section – with an emphasis on those not so well appreciated. It is by necessity a largely pictorial introduction, although relevant information is provided if available.

You'll find more architecture in the heritage walks section of this website. A list of architects and designers can be found on our people page. If you're looking for something specific, try the search page. We are working on pages dedicated to particular styles, the first one focusing on Brutalism, a style popular in the 60s and 70s.

We have also started making our walk booklets available as e-reader publications for iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle and other devices. Find out more >
