Brutalism turns a switch in me. Kinda like the smell of gasoline, you know it's gross, but you still are sorta attracted to it.

Art Deco. Nice thread BTW.
All the other "isms" don't quite have the elegance.
Brutalism holds its facination, because I have a "bunker mentallity" by nature.

Art Deco.

But the works of Le Corbusier, Oscar Niemeyer, Tadao Ando, etc are timeless.

Decon, futurism have great potential in the 21st century.
