Such a heavy looking building supported by only a few pillars looks almost surreal. I love it.

This is (was) the Morris A. Mechanic Theater which stood in Baltimore, MD (USA) until early this year.











Demoition is just now nearing completion to make way for this:

Man, that's almost as bad as the Wal-Mart style box they will build to replace the Orange County Government Center.

I know, right? You might be surprised to know that most Baltimoreans are happy with this and see it as progress and a vast improvement.

They don't respect the past. Plain and simple. One day they'll come to regret it.

Yet another of London's mid-century/brutalist heritage that will be disfigured to look more 'modern.'

National Arts Centre - Ottawa, Canada

The National Arts Centre at Canada's capital city, Ottawa





The repeating hexagon shape is reflected in pretty much every aspect of the building, from the structure, down to the interior details:




Southam Hall: Interestingly, the box seats are actually cantilevering slabs that are matched on the exterior of the theatre, creating a floating access stairway. Hard to explain.. see these next two images.


Proposed 'Rejuvination'. In my opinion, it's not too bad, respecting the vertical lines of the cladding, at least.

It is though, that's one of the rawest concrete I've ever seen. Le Corbusier used concrete like this somtimes.
Look up "La Notre Dame du Haut" from Le Corbusier and you'll understand.

It looks very good, it doesn't detract from the integrity of the building in any way. The ones proposing the Hayward Gallery extenstion should learn from this.
