Nice stuff Kr0x - but you can't embedd "fotocommunity" material directly. They aren't displayed for other people. You have to upload them to an image hoster like http://tinypic.com, so you need to change the image URLs.

WOW! Too bad this isn't sitting on the Schlossplatz. Such a beautiful work of art!

The embassy of the Czech Republic, a very nice example of 1970s architecture. It stands in East Berlin, so it is communist architecture. I love it!

It is definitely one of the nicer examples for brutalism.

Not me that one. I hate gold mirrored windows. It looks so cheap.

It's not a horrid example of architecture though. But nothing I would look at any more than 2seconds.

It does look worse in that photo because of the unkempt surroundings. Weeds and ugly vacant lots.

It's not just you Justyou

In fact I dislike all types of 'aquarium' style buildings, regardless gold or not.

It looks cleaner around there from the other side, the street was recently renovated, I think. To the left you might see a part of the embassy of North Korea

The interior looks pretty promising, though.

C'mon, just another one of the exterior, as we're all in deep love with brutalism!

Brutalism is probably the most hated style, it's hard to like it. But there are a few nice examples in the world, like this one.


More interior pics!
