I love the Genex Tower in Belgrade! In general brutalist buildings are all ugly but special in a way. and in the end thats what counts for me. though theres no need to add more of such buildings to the world“s cities

I don't think they're that bad. They provide some contrast.

One other big thing that I think would help Brutalist buildings would be if they had better integration of windows. Either they lack them altogether, or they just make these endless boring repetitions.

I love brutalism, and I just love how brutalist buildings can actually be extremely cozy and reflect a lot of atmosphere.

Want to add this to the topic, not really brutalist but.. the new Stadium for Atletico Madrid in constructions phase
Photo taken by me last October
