Indeed, the cantilever is stunning. It's as if the building was defying gravity and floating in the air. And they're not even using trusses!

The interior of the buildings is anything but "brutalist"- floor, walls and ceiling are entirely clad in timber.

It's funny that the recurrent criticism of brutalism is that concrete weathers poorly, making the building look decayed and cold. But the architects here (Dietmar Eberle and Carlo Baumschlager) opted for béton brut exactly because of its weathering qualities- the patina developed on concrete under the influence of weather, should help blending the building with surrounding nature.

Nice pictures:

Barbican, London

Took these on my phone before a concert; had forgotten how gorgeous the Barbican was.

Central Post Building, Hamburg, Germany (1977)

Very 70s sci-fi, but it is apparently due for demolition

I found this building from Austria, but I'm not 100% sure if it's brutalist, although looks like it is.
