You 2nd picture is in (a satelitte town of) Paris, your 3rd picture is an installation, not a building. (1000 doors temporarily re-used to make a 10 storey façade on a scaffolding system). But it is in Asia at least (Seoul)

As said by Concrete Stereo, this housing project is located in Nanterre, a western suburb of Paris. I live just some hundred of meters from them.
They are the highest social housing towers in France (39 floors).

You should have closed your eyes because now you will forever have nightmares with the monsters of Rio de Janeiro.
This ugly piece of LEGO does not deserve its place in such wonderful city.



and like if that wasn't enough to make you want to puke, you get to hear some news, it has a neighbor. Bad news is, its neighbor is the ugliest thing in Rio de Janeiro (from the outside because the inside is stunning), the Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio. Or just a lost Maya temple in Rio. And the saddest part is that they are located right next to the super old aqueduct, ruining such a good place to take photos.

Many of those brutalist buildings actually seem interesting and are good examples of their time.

i dont like it bcos of the intersecting box in the oval structure, but i think that foreign people dont care bout it..it look iconic & people like to take photo with this building when they visit the city where the building is in..

Quite predictably, some fabulous buildings in this thread... and some hideous.
