Its replacement will be built in a fake old style to fit in with the rest of the university. No more contrast of architecture...
what a beautiful building
love this style
so modern, yet it has an old nostalgic touch
unlike a lot of glassy structures today which look light and cheap, many (not all) of these brutalist buildings look heavy, elegant and just have a rich feel
this is a great example

Iwan Iwanoff - Kessel house

It looks like a strange but interesting mix of the mayan houses of Frank Lloyd Wright and brutalism



another fascinating one, even stranger: the Marsala house

Great example of 80's Brutalism! If ever there was a place to put a green roof, that is it. Could also use some waterfalls in there, too.

I like that chapel. Though, they should work on the grass around it...

I just love Scarborough College in Canada, it screams pure retro sci-fi with its awesome geometricity (if that's a word).
