I don't think that The Red Road Flats are brutalist architecture. They are just terrible and tall commieblocks.

The only brutalist architecture homes there were at Red Road were the small grey buildings in the picture below.


These were little three-storey flats on Birnie Court. There was eight of them, but they were demolished from 2005-2008. Not much is known about these little grey buildings as they were greatly dwarfed by the non-brutalist towerblocks. There was one home on each floor.

Social housing blocks are not Brutalism, but Plattenbau

Also, a Post Office in Agadir from 1966. There are some recent photos, but they are low quaity. The concrete is a sandy beige.
