ANZ Bank - Launceston Brutalism
This dominant but lovely Brutalist period building in central Launceston is the home of the ANZ Bank. to the right beside it is the Westpac Bank, another Brutalist period building. These buildings replaced Victorian buildings in a time when towns and cities around the world were changing with rapid pace. Many older buildings were sadly lost, but buildings such as the ANZ Building (pictured) will no doubt be classics in time to come. This is one of several Brutalist style buildings in Launceston. Other notable examples include Henty House and the Police Headquarters.
