It looks like the building wasn't cleaned at all
In fact, it is abandoned since 2007 and will be demolished soon

Reminds me of 60ties hotels. Along the slopes of the Garda lake in Italy you can find a few of those hotels.

The development is very cleverly done. It's not intrusive and it makes use of space that was otherwise unuseable.

Condon Hall
Seattle, USA

It was hated when it was built in 1973. It's still hated in 2013.
Brace yourselves for Brutalism:

The worst Chilean skyline. A beautiful island called Chilo in the south of Chile was destroyed by a huge shopping mall.

This is Brooke House in BASILDON, ESSEX, UK.

I guess you can say it's Brutalist.

To me personally its so ugly its kind of attractive. It's a grade II Listed building and in some shots look awesome. But I cannot deny... it's ugly haha.

What do you guys think?

I've seen it before! I think it's a lovely building. I especially like its unique base

I think its nice too. Ugly... but Ugly nice haha. I sound crazy trying to explain this. But it's a good building. Basildon has an almost Mini City Skyline.

At least Basildon doesn't have a 40ft height limit on all buildings in the city

It's a nice building anywho. I like brutalist buildings like that, even though a lot of people seem to detest them. I'd prefer the Trellick Tower over Q1 any day
