Outstanding pictures guys. See how nice the buildings can look if they're clean and the picture is composed to compliment the building; i.e. not black and white frog perspective photos :p

I've noticed that one of the things that really improves a brutalist building is thin, black window frames.

Gorgeous. It kinda reminds me of the 'De Stijl' movement of artists like Piet Mondrian

This is due to be demolished since the new library has already opened.
