As much as I like the look of raw concrete, sometimes it really needs to just be painted.

These two aren't exactly "old" brutalism, since they are very recent buildings. However, the raw concrete is there...

Portugal, housing in Porto
Architect: Eduardo Souto de Moura


South Korea, mimesis museum
Architect: Alvaro Siza

Please forgive me for being off-topic (again), but it's quite curious you linked some pictures by Chiara Lalli, because in first stance she's not a photographer, more something like a philosopher, and here in Italy she's quite popular, especially among the "internet people", for her stances on several ethical issues such as abortion, euthanasia, same-sex marriage, and so on.

Church of Seed, Huizhou, China (2010)






The concrete texture resembles the texture of a bamboo wall. What a genius detail, tastefully connecting modernism with Chinese traditional hints.

Looks pretty old to be from 2010.

I suppose it's the bamboo texture of the concrete which resembles the corduroy texture used largely in the 1960s.

that's one of the things. Another is that that kind of design, with those shapes and roofs were mostly used back then. Modern brutalism is different.

-------------------

Would you call this brutalism? It's breton brute.

I would say so.

My photos of the 1973 John P. Robarts Library in Toronto, Canada
It's an incredible building, one of the best pieces of 1970s architecture in Canada, in my opinion.









I haven't been inside yet, but apparently it has an amazing interior.

I'm not sure if this building was presented here:

The Cultural Education Center, New York, USA (architects: Wallace Harrison and Max Abramovitz, built in 1961)

Yeah, it's been posted on here before...
I wonder when people will realize that this style is just as important to save as with any pre-war style, and that there is a finite amount of well-preserved brutalist architecture such as this building.











It's not just the murals, either. The whole building would be a sad loss since they do not build buildings like this anymore.
