Blade Runner-esque


Although it needs a renovation and matching windows to look good.

Genex in Belgrade, Serbia. One of my favorite Balkan brutalist buildings.

Personally I cannot like that building until all the windows are replaced and match with each other.

This is the tallest building in my university which houses the colleges of Business and Arts. Not sure if it's Brutalist but looking at the other pictures here, it seem to belong in this category

I don't really mind it, but it looks so out of place in the vicinity. My university was built inside a walled city known as Intramuros which is where the old Manila was. During the 80's a special administrative division was formed to regulate the style of the buildings so the Filipino-Spanish style can be followed. Unfortunately, the implementation of the building code was not retroactive. So the existing buildings, including this one do not need to comply.

Here's an aerial shot of the area and some other building within the walls so you'll know what I mean when I said this building is out of place

This example is from Zagreb, Croatia. They call them “Rockets”. Communist-era apartment blocks. Architect – Richter.

Sirius Apartments, Sydney - some of these are public housing and look directly over Sydney Harbour and the Opera House (very lucky residents).

The Rockets need to be maintined better. It's a shame most people can't see the architectural merit in these buildings and feel it's okay to just vandalize them and let them crumble.
You don't get the same cool bone-chilling feel with any other architecture type.

Brutalism needs to be more respected. It is an essential part of architecture history and even humanity. It allows those with deeper darker personalities to express themselves visually instead of having to deal with all the frou-frou glam of the historical styles, and its superficial ornamentation. People always say 'Oh, those 60s architects were insane' when they haven't even realized how bored everyone was back then of those old brick buildings everywhere.
As an artist myself, I'm personally irritated when people dismiss brutalist buidings as 'horrid 70s monstrosities' when they don't even bother to note how unique and awe inducing some of them can be. It's a really closed-minded mentality...
