Some nice pictures from Kuwait. Seems to be a lot of this stuff there.

Beaumont House, Montreal, QC, Canada (2011)

The interior has some wood, and the exterior has some Corten steel, to add warmth to the design.

@KWT

I know that some construction companies from ex-Yugoslavia had some projects there (I mean in Kuwait). Probably some of the brutalist buildings are their work. Do you have some information about this?

BTW, very nice photos. Thanks for sharing with us. The building of the Gulf Bank is a master-piece.

Interesting to see a full blown concrete city like Kuwait City. Some of the more recent pics seem to suggest that a lot of what was built back then has aged not that well?

Probably two thirds of the buildings on this thread are ugly crap. Brutalism was a good example of ideological architectural incest--the public never really liked the style even when it was new but were told by elites that it was beautiful so they went along. Interestingly many of the Brutalist buildings were government built and now government money is tearing them down. Hooray! There are a few beautiful exceptions (I like Boston City Hall)
