The Ministry of Transport in Tbilisi, Georgia


The House of the Sovjets in Kaliningrad Russia. It dominated the city unfinished for I think some 20 years. Now it has been finished with a blue/gray facade.


The Genex-tower in Belgrade, Serbia. Also known as the Western Gate. One part contains offices, the other part is residential. On top it had a restaurant, but it has been closed a long time ago. Built in 1981.

That U of L pic is very cool. That building really compliments the landscape. How far from the Badlands, is Lethbridge?

Boston City Hall is actually beautiful, I think. But I have to admit that I am one of those 'Brutalist-enthousiasts'...

And the oscar for "most pulchritudinous brutalist washed-out concrete building" goes to: Technisches Rathaus (technical city hall) in Frankfurt, Germany. Congratulations!



What a beau, ain't it?
