Scarborough College from that one guy and the Teotihuacan pyramids

Fine Brutalism has an archaic attitude,

New South Building, Princeton, NJ, USA (1968)




Sadly they closed off that nice open base area and ruined its redeeming feature.

Those rocks in the concrete are really cool, they add character.

I also like that the original orange window frames are still there.

Yes, I think that they give the buildings more "rustic" look, like they are stone houses.

I really like brutalist architecture, but somehow this reminds me more of a small district heating plant or a switchgear station.
