These aren't probably the 'best in the world' but they're my own pictures (on flickr) and I love this architectural style. Was amazed that I could find examples of it within an hour of where I live!

Melvin Municipal Building (City Hall) Greensboro, North Carolina:

I took in 2008, one picture only of the famous Sheraton Hotel in Toronto. Probably all over this website, anyway. All the buildings here are from the year 1972!

actually, although they seem dirty and bulky, I kinda like this kind of architectural style. They give you an old-fashion sense of futurist

No Yale A&A or late Le Corbusier? seems like a badly incomplete thread on brutalism without those.

Yale Art and Architecture building by Paul Rudoloh its like the definition of brutalism, and done really well in my opinion.


Unite d'Habitation, Marseille, Le Corbusier
A very neat housing project from his later years, was poorly ripped off in the US in the development of some of the infamous housing projects, as well as one or two halfway decent town in town ideas.







By the way brutalism does not come from the term brutal, its from beton brut, the French term for raw concrete, not modernism one might find ugly (though alot of it is pretty bad).

Brutalism is probably the worst thing to come out of the twentieth century outside of MTV.

No way!! It's so awesome in a beautifully ugly way. But I guess I can understand why you hate it, since you live in Edmonton and there's so much of it that it can become "too much" perhaps.

I like the concept of this one, turning the balconies into roof pitches, to remind to the roof, I'd call it post-modern instead of a pure brutalist.

Well yeah, it's a style that overlaps modernism, rationalism and the 70s minimal-futuristic architecture.

This one for instance Domus justitiae - Palácio da Justiça - Lisbon, Portugal, LINK with its geometric decorations would fit better the definition of modernist/rationalism than brutalism.

Sorry, but why did you post this here? It has obviously nothing to do with brutalism...

I see some Rapson, Cedar r\Riverside is well arranged on its site and definitely one of the better federally sponsored housing projects, but the colored panels haven't withstood the test of time very well, and there aren't enough elevators. And I would have to Rarig has the ugliest exterior of his career, wonderful theaters inside though, not quite to the standard of the original Guthrie Theatre, but excellent for a university theater program.

if you ride by riverside plaza on the light rail and look up, you will see what appears to be rotting wood or cardboard put up underneath the windows as makeshift repairs. to me this is just really unacceptible. even for a low income housing project
