London brutalism is wonderful! The key to its success is the injection of colour, nature and stark lighting.

IMO the key to a successful brutalist building is to not let it fall into disrepair and to not paint it in gaudy colours. If it looks new, clean and fresh, it's great.

The last one and Barbican look so fascinatingly retro-futuristic, cool.

I know it's not blocky like the quintessential brutalist building, but I thought the concrete use justified it as part of the style. I love how brutalism, although with more creative designs, is being built more these days, and how others from 40 years ago are being renovated!

The Index in Dubai might be considered brutalist.

Though the aesthetic of these structures are up to debate(I personally love brutalism) You just to have to give it to the architects who designed such awe inspiring and massively powerful buildings. There is no grace behind these buildings but instead these structures embodies power. And therein lies their beauty.
