Indeed! It needs a bit of an Urban Splash (a la Park Hill) touch given to it to add some life! You've got to feel sorry for it really, I get the feeling from watching a YouTube clip a while ago that even the architects fell out of love with the place (unfortunately I cant find it any more! It gave a good insight into early 1970s attitudes towards public housing, and the vandalism which was beginning to occur).

More Brutalism...

The renovation of the Cube Building in Prague (1977) brought out its beautiful use of space and clean lines and concrete:

A 1970 building filled with sculptural mid-century modern richness will be pulled down.
You don't see buildings like this any more. A preservation disaster.

The Ulster Museum in Belfast, Ireland, is an interesting combination of brutalist and classical architecture.
