The Braga Municipal Stadium, is inserted in an old quarry in the city of Braga (North Portugal). It is a case of successful rehabilitation of an abandoned industrial area. With viewpoint at the top of the quarry to the city and the stadium, and green spaces in the downtown area of the quarry. All this, gave the Pritzker Architecture Prize Portuguese architect "Eduardo Souto de Moura"!

Love Ostankino. Really gives off that chilling evil feeling I find attractive.

Once again, I have to repost this building, Bank of Georgia Headquarters. It's one of the few office buildings I would happily work in. The shape and the way it integrates nature is so beautiful! It makes you 'feel at home' and is also one of the few brutalist builings with an integration of nature as a big priority.

I'm not sure if this is brutalism, but at least it has a lot of concrete

Sadly, one of them is currently losing its brutalist touch as it is being converted to "modern" standards

I dоn't know why, but I always thought that brutalism in architecture is more common in socialist countries. However, some of the best examples come from the United States.
