I don't think this was posted here yet, despite being a rather prominent, tall building:
University Hall, Chicago, IL, USA (1968)



Ironically, the best photo of it is on Google Maps:

My own photos

Sadly I couldn't capture many good front-on photos because of a fenced off parking lot. I hope one day they replace it with an open public space.

I was in Köln today and saw a brutalist highrise I didn't know before. This city is only a 2 hours drive from me, yet it is only the second time I have visited. This is in the Riehl district. I also drove past a number of other Brutalist highrises I knew before.



apparently this tower is called; Colonia Hochhaus, all residential
