Langson Library, Irvine, CA, USA (1965)
Honestly, the facade is so elegant that in my opinion it is on the same level as many historic cathedrals and city halls.






And it's still the same colour as the day it was completed. Proof that as long as you take care of it, concrete will age gracefully.

The one in Salnero is gorgeous!

From one angle it looks like an ancient ampitheatre

I think that was the idea of the architect. BTW, his name is Paolo Portoghesi. The architecture of the church refers to all those ancient ruins in Italy, especially the amphitheaters.

The large brutalist water feature - Villaincourt Fountain - that turns its back on the waterfront beyond was originally sited to act as a partial screen of the freeway while celebrating its aesthetic. The plaza by Lawrence Halprin was part of his design for the renovation of the adjacent Market Street in the late 60's and early 70's.
