I love the shape of that tower, its a strong looking building and very tall...I think the facade has way too much going on though

The whole riverside plaza complex of public housing in minneapolis. the only problem with tearing this down is that it is home to at least 20,000 people

This has a good shot at getting torn down. It's hideous, and abandoned.

It will be sad if it does though, I don't think I've ever heard of an American city whose tallest building was torn down.

One of the most prominent brutalist architecture structures, Tel Aviv municipality building...




I don't think it should be teared down though...
