I guess corduroy concrete?

Although it looks broken up into small squares. It's a very humanizing texture, like a quilt. Shame it's gone now.

They're thinking about this since years but afaik it's not decided. The main problem is that the ceilings are not high enough by modern standards so you can't turn it into a high-quality office space.

So much great stuff lost.

Interesting to see how many of the examples are quite recent (from the 70s onwards), while I can't remember in the thread examples from historical modernism (interwar especially, but there are 50s and 60s examples tbf). To me that says we still have a problem with giving protected status to recent architecture, and we need to push the issue more in the public conscience.

I can't remember any interwar modernism being demolished recently, probably because it's quite valuable and rare.

It's also called bush-hammered concrete.
Rudolph invented it, and it quickly became the brutalist material du jour in the 1960s.

Bucharest building of exceptional importance currently being let to fall down by itself (i.e. secretly helped), in the context of lax regulation and indifference on the part of the authorities. In a couple of years this will be history.












http://www.riseproject.ro/cladirea-i...-la-bucuresti/

If I'm not wrong this is Marcel Iancu's largest house he built in Bucharest. A key figure, he is maybe the most important East European modernist architect that wasn't Russian. Amongst others, he is famous for founding the Dada movement in Zurich.

Edit: another pic

I used to live near this building

Along with Bucharest has some of the best 1930s modernism in East Europe, hidden under decades of neglect. Neglect that will result in either demolition or a collapse. It's a crime, really.
