Then you have the daddy of them all...



Designed by Bengt Edman & Lennart Holm in 1950, the Villa Göth in Uppsala was the first building to be referred to as Brutalist, by the architect Hans Asplund. He called it "nybrutalism" (new brutalism).

You can get a look into the house in this episode. It's from a swedish show called "Hustoppen" where two architects and one interior designer grade different houses. Two hosts show the houses and ask the owners questions.

That has brick, however. I wonder what the first raw-concrete building in the brutalist style was.

Must have been restored recently, that concrete is pristine.

Golden Mile Complex, 1973, Singapore

http://www.dpa.com.sg/projects/golden-mile-complex/







Mixed use development, with a slanting form providing sky view of the sea at the back, and deep shade against the afternoon sun at the front. The deep skylight supposed to light up the interior of the building got blocked (or painted over) over time.

http://proconservation.blogspot.sg/2...e-complex.html

The rear of the building had since been modified by individual owners, adding extra rooms or new roofs to the balconies, and it had organically transformed into what looks like an aerial village.

King's College London.



I actually think its one of the best examples of Brutalism in the world, if you exclude the top section.
