The so called "Eastern Gate" and some other 1970's brutalist residentials from Belgrade, Serbia..

The Eastern Gate was actually featured in the daily GTC in August, and I had found it terribly ugly:

I'm aware most of them do have beautiful neighborhoods. But on the whole, when viewed from above, some basically look like a sprawl of grey commieblocks around a large port.

I like this one, precisely because of its cladding!

but again, taste are taste my contribution is to affirm that every position can be very reasonable and acceptable while honestly supported

Absolutely disgusting. Looks like it was an ugly boxy building and someone threw a blanket with holes over it. Horrible building.

This is just one example of millions of ugly buildings that exist throughout Argentina.

That's not Eastern gate but block 23 in New Belgrade. Eastern Gate is the 3 building complex.
Of course Western gate (Genex) is more famous, I believe it was alreday posted here.





What can I say It is ugly but we have a thing for 1970-s brutalism here so we like these buildings

Exactly! That's why threads like this are so stupid. The appeal of something is very personal. What I find ugly, you may love, and vice versa. Some people think Willis(Sears) Tower is ugly, and I agree, but there are people out there that will stab you if you say that to them in person. I respect it for its rightfully earned status as a skyscraper icon, but I don't like it at all. I also thought the twin towers were boring, but when I say that, people jump my shit. *shrug* It's just how it is.

I think most of these buildings could look pretty nice with a new cladding or a larger restoration. I think they only are ugly because they look dirty and they are bad maintained, but if it happens that somebody destroys these buildings, I think we really will regret it in 10 years...
