Some great lookig buildings you've shown here.


-----------------------
My city experienced it's highest growth rates in the 60's and the 70's, so it's 'blessed' with brutalism.
This is the most beautiful brutalist building in the city. It looks pretty futuristic.
What I do not like is that they destroyed 95% of the older building.


...Only the front facade has been preserved. Not cool!


They also destroyed a wooden neo-gothic church and replaced it with this. Only the bell tower is brutalist however.



I hate this theater building. It was built in -80.

As long as the concrete is clean and new, I love brutalist buildings. They look elegant is some way and they are an anti-thesis to all these ghetto shacks or small crooked brick-buildings so abundant in old cities.

Many government buildings in Singapore built in the 70s are brutalist... Both lowrise and highrise.

I agree with BMXican, Montparnasse isn't what I would call brutalist.
For Paris, I would consider the residential towers of the 13th arrondissement as a better example.

Please Scroll ------>>>> ====>>>


There's about 30 towers above 300 feet in that picture. All brutalist.
