Crazy building. Do you know who's the architect?

Niemeyer would be so sad if he read that. He fought hard his whole life for the opposite impression!

Michele Achilli, Daniele Brigidini, Guido Canella, Laura Lazzari. Built in 1963-66.

But not for this building, that was studied in order to give an impression of structural strenght and monumentality, to symbolise the power of the Mondadori group.

Monumental indeed. In fact that was one of the criticisms at the time, given it represented a corporation. But Oscar's approach to the monumental was always so elegant and light. Like his Alvorada palace, which you would agree it´s not an example of brutalism.

But let us diverge on ththe Italian one!
Beautiful, gorgeous design...

The industrial Albert Canal, one of the busiest inland canals in the world, in Belgium has old modernist control towers in bare concrete on every lock.
