There's a small possibility all those buildings will be demolished in some years...

Also, the last one is the Credito Hipotecario Nacional building, a separate construction, but part of the whole Centro Cívico complex

Wouldn't this be more like Postmodern? The design elements and bright colors hint towards Postmodernism. It reminds me of Horton Plaza in San Diego, for instance.

It seems a bit too old for the postmodern movement (it was designed in the mid 60s). Luis Barragan is considered modernist and also uses those bright colours. There's no arches or balustrades that could be considered postmodernist.

I get what you mean though, the stairwells seem to reference classical African mud brick architecture.

Mis Century Modern was actually quite colorful.Especially in the Americas, where it part of a whole optimistic expression of new techniques and availability of colors. It was only as they aged and trends moved towards the muted earth colors of the late 60s and 70s that they were changed. Of course, more photos from that time were not color, so many people did not realize how colorful they were when first built.
