I love it when they add some colour to the concrete, the texture gives it so much more character than it would with regular limestone slabs, in my opinion.

Israel has a lot of good brutalism which held up well in the dry climate:
Zalman Aran Library, Beersheba



City Hall, Beersheba


Top one looks 70s, the bottom looks more late 60s.

Did they demolished the whole complex, or just a part of it (like on the second photo)?

Just the part in front. Still sad, though, it looked like something LeCorbusier would have designed.

Center for Addiction and Mental Health, Toronto, Canada (1966)
I see this tower every day, and it looks quite good standing on its own. It's almost surrounded by century old buildings which makes for a nice contrast.
