Trellick Tower in London's Notting Hill

and it's near-identical twin in Poplar, East London .



Both designed by Erno Goldfinger (who Ian Fleming named his James Bond character after).

The MetLife tower in New York - exposed precast concrete elements give it a rough texture. Seen from an uncommon angle - the slender side. . .

That angle of MetLife reminds me of Boston's Prudential :

Humm i dont think this one is brutalist, because it's clad in glass. To be brutalist, a building needs to expose the raw properties of concrete, which makes it appear more massive than what it deserves. However, the smaller white highrise in front of it appears to be brutalist.

I am not sure if the Waterview Towers are brutualists or just post-modern, but I will just let others decide with this shot of it, and they are the read buildings in between the ES/Chrysler Bldgs.
