It will very likely be demolished. Thanks, English Heritage.

Another gorgeous 1960s English building that might see the wrecking ball
Is it so hard to just powerwash the facade??

Both in Honolulu and elsewhere on the island. I think Brutalism really sets off the lush vegetation, especially at some of the grand resorts. That's where Brutalism shines - a contrast to the landscape.

Brutalist in material, yet futuristic in form.
Silo 13, Paris, France (2014)









I love the orange highlights, they go so well with the concrete.

The epitome of Brutalist architecture, considered one of the 20th century architectural marvels; The Jatiyo Sangsad Bhaban, the Bangladesh Parliamentary building considered to be one of the biggest parliament buildings of all time. I like to refer to it as the stonehenge of Bangladesh. Only made possible by Louis Kahn, the architect.

Nice one, it has a lot of 70s character to it. They should remove the grafitti, though, and also that clunky white roof thing that doesn't look like part of the original design.

You're right, the roof is added later due to problems with leaking while there are heavy rain falls (this is actually big problem with many of the examples of the brutalist architecture in Skopje). It's looks hideous, but it works for now. But I would be happier if they find a better solution for the problem.

The interiors also seem to be in the original late 70s style.

Centro Gerencial Las Margaritas, Guatemala City.

This one is Tower 1, built in 1991. Tower 2 is a bit more brutalist It was built in 1994 (not sure, though). There have been plans to build a Tower 3 in the future.
