Thanks Harald, for your comments.
Australia has a very short European history and is obviously an immigrant nation following colonial settlement in 1788. (After a continuous First Nations history going back some 40,000+ years).
So architecture here is also imported, originally Georgian English and vernacular rustic rural, followed by a succession of styles many of which were brought by immigrant architects, as well as home grown designers influenced by travels abroad and publications.
So, following the first colonial era there were Regency, neo-classical, Gothic revival, Italianate, cast-iron decorated terrace-houses, Arts and Crafts, Federation Queen Anne, Californian Bungalow, neo-Tudor, Spanish Mission, Bauhaus inspired functionalist modern, Art Deco, International Style modern, vernacular suburban, Post-Modern, Brutalist, and contemporary.
Quite a hotch-potch, although there are some areas that have a uniformity due to having been developed around the same time.
And nothing very much that's unique to Australia, other than some homesteads in the outback, and the raised off the ground Queenslanders (so as to be above flood level).
Plenty to see and to photograph.

Sounds like Brazilian anthropofagia cultural. A shame that there are no unique Australian styles. At least one Australian has won the Prizker Prize.

Some more streetscape frontages of various residential buildings of various styles and from various eras in inner Melbourne on a winter's afternoon.
All a7iv, some with SEL2470GM.

1. Victorian terrace houses with their typical decorative cast iron balconies. These somewhat unusual in that they are all free-standing with narrow breaks between the buildings.

2. A mix of styles. The cream brick would have been mid-20th century, the yellow probably around the 1930s, and the white late 19th century..

3. The ground level curved picture window of the cream brick building.

Looks like the owner if the house on the left made some modifications to the original style. Well spotted Joe

Fascinating - one of three Panopticon-style prisons in the Netherlands. Are there still asylum-seekers housed in it?

This prison is ‘rebuild’
They dug out the central hall and build 5 (!) cinema’s and a large meeting place.
The cells can be hired by artists. In the prison guard houses they build a large hotel (in corona period)
Financially a serious challenge.
I took some pictures there last year (when it was in the final stage. I’ll look them up.

@Domien, Pieter & Addy: Thank you for the link and the images of the interior.

So it has never been a "real" Panopticon (cells open to the center, watch tower in the center), but just some features of the Panopticon have been adopted. But it's fascinating in its current state (another reason to put Haarlem on my list).
