Carrières Centrales, Cité Verticale/Horizontale, Casablanca, Morocco, George Candilis, Victor Bodiansky, and Shadrach Woods in 1952

The “Cité Horizontale” was tested as a series of low-rise patio houses, while the “Cité Verticale” was tested as a series of high-rise patio houses. The idea behind this field study was to create homes for workers and local employees who worked for the Protectorate. However, the rent was so high for most of the people living in the Bidonvilles that few could afford a flat that was “built for them.”

Union Tank Car Company ("Bucky's Baton Rouge Dome"), Buckminster Fuller, Baton Rouge, 1958, demolition by neglect in 2007::

The dome was designed by Buckminster Fuller, who actually patented the technology and devised the name, for the Union Tank Car Company in 1958. This dome, according to the Buckminster Fuller Institute, was the ninth largest geodesic dome in the world

New Khmer Architecture, Cambodia: 1953 to 1970

New Khmer Architecture was an architectural movement in Cambodia during the 1950s and 1960s. The style blended elements of the Modern Movement with two distinctly Cambodian traditions: the grand tradition of Angkor, and the vernacular tradition of ordinary people's houses. Colonial architecture also had an influence, especially in the earlier years. The movement was founded in 1953 with Cambodia's independence, reached its climax during the 1960s and came abruptly to an end in 1970 with the overthrow of Norodom Sihanouk

Most New Khmer Architecture buildings in Phnom Penh and across the country survived the years of war and devastation remarkably intact. Some were destroyed by the Khmer Rouge: destroyed were for example all but one of the country's churches built during the 50s and 60s (only Sihanouk Ville's church survived), and the University of Kampot-Takeo. Unfortunately ruthless liberalism and the current period of high economic growth are proving to be a much greater threat. Some buildings worth protecting, like the Preah Suramarit National Theater (which partially burned down in 1994 after a building accident) and the Council of Ministers, have already been destroyed in the rush to modernize. . Many buildings built during the period are in poor shape. The National Sports Complex is especially vulnerable. Even though it is still in regular use, a recent "renovation" was extremely superficial.

Only a few buildings in the style are in good condition and regularly used (the Chaktomuk Compound (part of the Senate), Chaktomuk Conference Hall and Chenla Theater for example). Confounding the situation is the fact that many Cambodians, especially those in power, don't recognize the movement as distinctly Khmer. On the contrary, many – erroneously – see it as something foreign, because "it's too modern (...) and is not understood as being an expression of a vital time in Cambodia's history" .

Currently a small group of people, mainly foreigners, is trying to raise awareness of Cambodians in an effort to save the remaining sites. A new generation of Cambodian architecture students is also aware of the situation.

some examples:

Get Carter Car Park, Rodney Gordon, Gateshead (Australia), 1969

Trinity Square is a shopping centre in Gateshead, Tyne & Wear, particularly noted for its Brutalist car park designed by Rodney Gordon for the Owen Luder Partnership. The concrete structure, which dominates the skyline of the town, has a prominent role in the 1971 film Get Carter, so is often referred to informally as the Get Carter Car Park. The car park and the rest of the Trinity Square complex is currently scheduled for demolition and redevelopment

The car park was designed in 1962, when Brutalism was regarded as the cutting edge of architecture, but by the time that it opened in 1969, interest in the movement had begun to decline. The building's raw concrete weathered poorly, and by the time Get Carter was filmed the following year the car park had already become patchy.

The Multi-storey car park has seven tiers of parking decks. These are raised above the adjoining shopping centre by a "forest" of piloti columns. The decks on the north face have a slight curve creating a wave effect. There are two supporting towers containing stair and lift access. Each level of car park is therefore uninterrupted, so that when viewed from a distance the sky is visible through the structure. A cafe unit in a contrasting box structure sits above the top tier of the car park connected to the access towers by an expressed glazed 'bridge' and an open walkway. The cafe has large windows providing views across the Tyne Valley.

During the 1980s and 1990s, there were various proposals to redevelop the car park as a contemporary art gallery or events venue, but as the structure was regarded as a civic white elephant, these all met with local resistance.

wow, impressive buildings, it is unfortunate that some of these are in such a deplorable state, I think it was a time of considerable innovation in architecture. but also I think in some cases not take too much at the environment and therefore some are in disrepair.
