Teresa Carreño Theater, Caracas. Venezuela













I think it's pretty brutalist to me, though the concept is somewhat confusing.

Caracas is full of brutalist architecture, beautiful and ugly. I'll post some more later.

^ Library buildings, at least in Ontario, seem to love the brutalism. I don't have a pic right now, but our library at the University of Ottawa is pretty brutalist as well.

I had a chance to study for a year at Ryerson, my course at Bournemouth Uni does an exchange thing with you guys. Wish I'd taken it up. I've always wanted to go to Toronto.

That theatre in Caracas looks like the Thunderbirds HQ.

Anyone have photos of Place Bonaventure in Montreal? In a country so overwhelmed by its geography and nature, brutalism is a sharp contrast. It gives Montreal a feeling of permanence and solidity that you don't find in such abundance elsewhere in Canada. One of many reasons I love Montreal. Please post if you have it.

Cool. What program was it for? My program has an exchange with schools from around the UK and Australia but money and grades were an issue for me.

Singapore Power Building, built in 1975 was recladded in 2006





The building features an internal public plaza, as opposed to be a very enclosed and private office block.

A lot of Canberra is brutalist. National gallery, High Court, etc etc. Here's the High Court from the outside:

And the inside:

You could also class the National Carillon as Brutalism as well:

This is Museo de la Naciòn (National Museum) in Lima, Perù. Built as the Ministry of Fishing under the regimen of General Velasco.



And this is the Petroperù building in Lima. Petroperù is the national company of petroleum.



And, this is Sheraton Lima Hotel and behind it the Civic Center and its Tower, once the tallest buiding in Perù (now is Chocavento Tower, in San Isidro district)

I think these two can be considered example of brutalist architecture in Lisbon, Portugal:

A building in downtown, finished in 1971, if I'm not mistaken - I consider it the ugliest building in the whole city for several reasons.


The palace of justice.
