Berkeley Art Museum

Here is a link to the Berkeley (California, USA) Art Museum by Mario Ciampi:

Note that the steel posts were not part of the original design. They were added recently to support the cantilevered sections, which apparently had begun to sag.

How about the State Government buildings in Albany,New York. The ones that include the tallest building in Albany and more. I don't have a photo of these buildings but maybe someone else does on here.

Morris A. Mechanic Theater in Baltimore, MD, USA. Currently heavily debated -- some want to grant "historic" status, other want to tear it down and redevelop the site (in the heart of downtown Baltimore).

Admittedly, I'm in the latter camp. The front of the building is tolerable but faces away from the street. Street side is god-awful.

I think brutalism could be interesting it depends on the design! I personaly love the design of that cathedral in Venezuela.

Mashhad Central

Esfahan Central

There is quite a thread on brutalism at the polish forum, first there were some ambiguities concerning what actually brutalist style really was, but on further pages the matter gets sorted out:

A neglected (in this thread) masterpiece of the art, Trellick Tower



That Iranian stuff is exceptional, but certainly not brutalist, nor the terrific Venezuelan cathedral.

This, however, is:

Cmon, surely you can show more shots of it, i love this tower, old, dangerous and ugly, but there's something about it which makes me hope that it never gets demolished, here some pics:

London, Trellick Tower:











And the Balfron Tower, the older and shorter sister of the Trellick Tower:

The flats in Trellick Tower are very popular now.

If it gets torn down, it won't be for a lack of residents.

It won't be torn down, it's a listed building (listed buildings cannot be demolshed or significantly altered without approval from English Heritage).

Just for Tony Resta, Paul Catherall's 'Trellick Blue'.
