This building was planned for demolition, but instead it got a Grade II listing, and a beautiful Miesian-style extension will be built.

I'm not sure how they got away with constructing this in Ceausescu's Romania, but at least it has good architecture.

Probably because it was far away from Bucharest, at the very edge of Romania (on the border line with ex Yugoslavia). Anyway, here is another photo from wikipedia of the whole church.

It's actually quite a beautiful structure. Not something most people would say for a concrete prison.

The last picture is especially beautiful.

They should start making pillows with concrete textures, to make it seem more warm
