Al-Irsyad Mosque, Bandung, Indonesia.
Designed by Indonesian architect Ridwan Kamil. A concrete box, complete with boxy arabic inscriptions on its four sides (also serves as a natural ventilation), and of course with a boxy minaret too, it is not your usual "domed" kind of mosque.

Normally I would say "PLEASE RESTORE" but for once I think those faded discoloured panels look quite good.

Seimas Palace, Vilnius, Lithuania (1980)
The windows are discoloured and need replacing but the concrete itself looks really good.

How do you guys think a brutalist supertall or skyscraper would look like? Is that even possible?

Infact they are building one right now in NYC out of pure white concrete.

432 Park Ave anyone? Not your classic brutalism but just raw concrete going 89floors up.

There are many brutalist highrises across the world but I don't know if they are high enough for being skyscrapers.
Personally I like east gates in Belgrade, Serbia. and Les Orgues de Flandre in Paris, France.
Both could easely feature in some steam punk futuristic film set.

I think that is more Bauhaus revival/International Style

The tallest brutalist building I would say is The Index in Dubai.

Could be I guess, still like the fact tha the tower is going to receive no cladding and the concrete will stay bare

The Index in Dubai is probably the tallest yes, There was this tower in some chinese city but I forgot the name...I'll try and search it.

I didn't find the tower in China yet but I found another smaller tower wich I really like!

I think this is still brutalism in a more modern form and if not the building is still epic!

Ardmore residence
Design: UN studio
Build: 2013
City: Singapore
Height: 135m

These are not renders I looked for the building and it look the same in pictures taken by people.

nice, but unless we want to consider every modern building as brutalist this isn't brutalism at all. This resembles a bit the style of Zaha Hadid, Calatrava and stuff like that.

750 feet high, stands for some years.

I mean that the usability could be difficult.
