Simon Fraser University, Burnaby/ Surrey/ Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Architects Arthur Erickson and Geoffrey Massey won a competition to design the university, and construction began in the spring of 1964. Eighteen months later, on September 9, 1965, the university began its first semester. The article on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Fraser_University

I've been there, it's a masterpiece and probably the building that got me into brutalist architecture.

I can only imagine how nice it is to sit on the benches of the main court, just in front of the water in the second picture while enjoying the distant symmetry of the concrete.

Kruševac spomenik

A view of the 'Solar Arch' or 'Gate of Death' which is the entrance area into the spomenik complex.

This monument at the spomenik complex at Kruševac, Serbia, created by Bogdan Bogdanović in 1965, commemorates the hundreds Partisan soldiers and civilians that were executed in the city between 1941 and 1944 during the WWII German occupation of Serbia.

Mostar Spomenik

A panorama view of the fountain spring at the top of the crypt terraces at the abandoned Mostar Spomenik complex, with the fountain channel seen running down the center. The city of Mostar and surrounding mountains can be seen in the background.

Created in 1965 by Bogdan Bogdanović, this spomenik complex at Mostar, Bosnia commemorates the 810 named fallen World War II fighters from Mostar whose bodies are interred in the cemetery here; each of the fighters were members of the Partisan National Liberation Army and died fighting against the Axis Ustaše and German occupiers. Since the 1990s, the complex has fallen into progressive disrepair, neglect and destruction.

The Natural History Museum in Shanghai has a nice water feature and sunken landscaping.

The Oval
Bennesse House Art Museum & Hotel
Architect: Tadao Ando (1995)
Location: Naoshima Island, Kagawa Prefecture, Japan

These were the only decent images that I was available to share, it's a pity that we can't see the whole structure, but you have google for a more proper research.

When I see the previous project, and this one that I am about to share I'm thinking about how we should've started the thread with these projects because they represent the epitome of landscape architecture in the way I perceive it, so not only a public park or a fountain, but a structure where people could live or work mixed with greenery.

Fallingwater or the Kaufmann Residence is a house designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935 (I cannot believe how early, or ahead of its time) in rural southwestern Pennsylvania, 43 miles (69 km) southeast of Pittsburgh. The article on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallingwater

This spomenik complex at Kadinjača (near Užice, Serbia), created in 1979 by Miodrag Živković, commemorates veteran Partisan fighters and their fallen comrades from Posavina and Orasje who fought in the Worker's Battalion of the Užice Partisan Detachment. Many Partisans perished here fighting against German forces during the Battle of Kadinjača on November 29th, 1941.

One of my favourite spomeniks. Never seen it from a distance, looks great.

Architect: Miguel Angel Aragonés

The landscape is essentially one large water feature with a sunken walkway.

Personally I think Ando is one of the most overrated architects ever, but this simply looks amazing.

^Indeed, his work manages to make a strong statement without being over the top, only using very minimal form and materials.
