My fave is Index Tower, DIFC:



It may be, that nobody called it brutalist-styled yet, but I call it a citadel. I hate how wasteful it is... But the style is there, and I'm loving it too!

Yeah!!. What establishes this house as utterly unique, is the tectonic vibrancy of the concrete block, the expressed channelling of rainwater and the overstated central stairway, which combine to establish a powerful plastic force.

Personally, I won't consider Geisel Library as 'Brutalist' Building. On the contrary, I think it is very elegant.

The name 'brutalist' comes from 'beton brut' which means raw concrete in French. It doesn't mean 'brutal' so you can indeed have an elegant brutalist building
