^ Sure, what else.


AKKS: Sorry, but this brutalist piece of cr*p definitely doesn't belong here, even if it might remotely remind you of Mayan buildings...

I leave for a week to Cuba and come back to find echoes of Brutalism creeping their way into this thread. Unbelievable!

Wow wow. It really seems as though the Kazakhs and the Uzbeks know where to place their architectural allegiances. Fantastic!
