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

In Poland we have very few examples of this fascinating style "Manhattan" in Wrocław is probably the biggest complex of this kind in whole country:

Yeah, Bratislava has a lot of great brutal modernism.

Actually, the term 'brutalism' doesn't come from brutality, but from "béton brut" - concrete left unfinished or roughly-finished after pouring and left exposed visually. So: I'm sorry Iluminat, that's no Brutalism haha

Well at least the podium-entrance is Brutalist (concrete and red brick) as for the "pyramid" part it's more controversial but I would say it gives the right impression, not all Brutalist buildings have exposed concrete:

I wasn't being serious. It's a very uninteresting discussion to start, it seems everybody has a pretty clear image of it, and the Slovak Radio Station fits perfect.

In "Slovak Architecture of 20th century" book is Slovak national gallery defined as brutalism, while pyramid of Slovak radio is an example of modernism

I also like this strange building from Tokyo although it's hardly the best example of this style:

Torre Velasca is one of the most digusting buildings I have ever seen. No wonder everyone thinks Milan is ugly.

This thread is depressing. It goes to show me that there isn't one example of Brutalism that I actually like. If this is the best of the best of this type of architecture, then there is nothing that I will like.
