Pruitt-Igoe Complex, St. Louis, Missouri, USA (1954-1972)
Architect: Minoru Yamasaki

Must have looked very futuristic in 1954. Shame it became a ghetto and was imploded.

Church of Our Lady of Fatima, Saguenay, Quebec, Canada (1962)

It is sadly abandoned and in terrible shape, and with no landmark protection and nobody to restore it, it is facing demolition.
