References for architecture from the 70s

Hey there
I am a hobbyist game developer and I'm trying to make an espionage game set in the 70s, but finding good references with google is proving to be much more challenging than I thought.

Anything, from trivial office buildings to mansions, interior and exterior. Since I couldn't find much I thought about coming here asking, maybe you know specific buildings (it's easier to find reference to a specific building than a time period)

Thanks! I love it. I mean, personally I don't find this design attractive, but it's what I'm looking for

The interior has some good stuff too

Those wooden panels (?) scream 70s.

I think I have a name: "Brutalist" architecture.
There's a wikipedia page with a list of buildings with this style by decade
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ist_structures

I'm sure this isn't the only architectural style in the 70s but since it started in the 50s and went on until mid-70s I think it is the most common, the signature.

I need to find some interiors now, and that's a bit harder because these are often altered throughout the years, thus it would be best to find photography taken during that time still with the current decoration and all.

That is one eccentric rich person! And that top shot looks like an imploded tower

But it's a legitimate 70s mansion! very useful. thanks
