Amazing!

Yorkshire Post Building, Leeds, UK (1969-2014)





Lamar Law Center, University of Mississippi, (1977) Thankfully unlike the one above it is getting a restoration, hence the fence.

If only I could have had the pleasure of experiencing the Tricorn Centre before it was neglected, demolished and then replaced by a surface car park that is never full...

I don't think this one was posted:

Le Corbusier Gymnasium, Baghdad (designed 1957, built 1982)




Martyr’s Monument, Algiers (1982)



Peavey Plaza, Minneapolis (1973)
A brutalist fountain. Seriously.




There were extremely close to demolishing it as well, but thankfully it was saved and listed as a historic piece of architecture, as it is indeed so.

Someone posted the Ameritrust Tower in Cleveland here before:
It was actually also really close to being demolished after being empty since 1996. They ended up with a plan to convert it to apartments.
Before:

During restoraton:

Demolish the wall next to the sidewalk, add a new green landscape, paint the concrete white, and replace the windows with new black framed ones and you've got a 21st century building.

Barbrican Estate, London (1969)






















Probably one of my favorite examples of Brutalism in London, along with the Trellick Tower & The Ministry of Justice Building.

The Barbican wouldlook so good if they would just sandblast or powerwiash the exterior. Isn't there some sort of way it can be done? I don't think it has seen any form of cleaning since it was built.

Some humanistic(is there such a thing?) brutalism in Denmark: The Børglum dormitory. 400 units in 7 circular blocks connected by a very spacy communal building. I know it's borderline, but it's definately got some elements borrowed from brutalism - expressive concrete, exaggerated structural elements, bold use of light(or lack thereof).
