Exhibition Description

Most residents of the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney are familiar with Tamarama’s infamous 1960’s building, locally known as the ‘Concrete Jungle’. Formally known as Glenview Court, this seven storey, Harry Seidler designed, brutalist concrete structure towers over Tamarama gully and is one of the last architectural relics of this size to receive a facelift. After discovering it is infected with concrete cancer, hundreds of residents will be evicted and displaced en-masse – many of whom have occupied the building’s concrete walls for decades.

Building resident and documentary photographer, Yasmin Mund was fortunate to spend the last three years of her life residing in the building. She has gradually documented the lives and abodes of each of the residents, sharing their unique stories about their soon to be demolished home.
