A nice one we all seemed to miss:
Pierre Vives Building, Montpellier, France (2012)







Zaha Hadid is really one of the great architects of our time.

I found this one in trieste, italy

The project didn't have a good luck. While, fortunately, it didn't become a dangerous ghetto (Trieste is a pretty safe city in general), it's inhabitated mostly by immigrants and poor people with no education and permanent jobs. There are graffiti everywhere and many residents toss their trash out of their windows. Ugly places like this rarely become gentrified.

That commenter should look at Park Hill, Sheffield for an example of an "ugly place" that got gentified and became nice.

I don't see nothing brutalist in there, except maybe the cross (if it's made of concrete).

I've seen this building in real life, it is just fascist neoclassical. No brutalism or concrete.

Wow! Those pinlights really blend well with brutalist architecture. Here's another brutalist architecture with pinlights:

Yeah, they have a bit of an atmospheric glow which contrasts well with the concrete.
And it's a very 70s style, you don't see them from any other decade.
