This is no brutalism. Just the fact this building is partly made out of concrete and is plain ugly, doesn't make it brutalism.

Well raw concrete is quite important to classyfy something as Brutalism, red brick was also quite common and the shape is quite weird and asymetric although there seem to be some postmodern inspirations.

Whatever the classification of these buildings, some are clearly brutal to my eyes.

But the Antwerp building actually looks like it had a bit of influences from old buildings (or row houses) that come to mind when I think of Belgian cities.

Robarts Library reminds me of Simcity 2000's church and Torres Blancas looks like an arcology.

I can't help but love this one in SF (even though most people I talk to dislike it):

Best Brutalism?

Easy.

UIC Illinois.



If someone could post an overhead of the old Plaza there, you would see what I mean.

I don't know if Sheraton Brussels is Brutalism, but it's pretty brutal to me.
(And I like it...)
