Although it DESPERATELY needs a power wash, it's undoubtedly one of the most monumental lighthouses.

A beautifully restored apartment building in Sheffield, UK

Park Hill (1961)





What it used to look like before:

And it's not like the resotraton deviated from its brutalist heritage. It still has an exposed concrete frame, but the windows breathe a new life into it. LeCorbusier would be proud of it.

Very interesting thread! Thanks to every one who posts photos of often unknown or underrated buildings.
Brutalism seems quite adapted to hot climates (with wide concrete walls and few windows) but there are so many examples of buildings erected in rather cold climates (Canada, Scotland...) that it seems more an architectural "gesture" than an answer to local conditions.
