Yes, poor people live in them. Thankfully I am quite wealthy, so I just point and laugh at them when I drive past them. If it's wet (it normally is), I will splash them by driving over large puddles with my car whilst they wait for public transport.

I know the last post here was around 5 years ago, but this is the only place i found where i can ask this question.Do you think this skyscraper is (brutalist) inspired or would you go as far as calling it a brutalist skyscraper?? Its currently U/C in Tirana.

I see nothing brutalist about it, more like postmodernism.

Brutalism is about letting the structure open, the bearing elements must be visible from the outside and with brutalism it's most likely bear concrete. This means almost no cladding for brutalism... Anyway this tower in Tirana is not ugly, the cladding could have been better but overall I like it.

That needs a serious renovation. It's a shame that so many brutalist buildings are just let to rot like that.

The twins in Glasgow look good.
