Finally, somebody feels my pain. Edmonton has so many Brutalist abominations it's almost depressing. Only Winnipeg is worse. Brutalism always reminds me of dictatorships and totalitarianism. It's grotesque, but I can understand why some people like it. Just not my cup of tea.

Robart's Library is Toronto's best example.




There's also Jorgenson Hall.

^ that complex reminds me a lot of the complex where the contemporary art museum from Thessaloniki is situated. Same post-industrial vibe.
