Alexandra Road Estate A high-density, low-rise housing project, this Grade ll listed building is mounted on rubber pads to minimize noise from the busy railway alongside it. Presumably the relative scarcity of windows on the side facing the tracks, greatly adding to its monumental appearance, was also designed with noise reduction in mind. The best view of this arresting stadium-like aspect is from Abbey Road, just to the west of the estate as it crosses the railway lines.

Boston City Hall (1968) en Boston, Massachussets - El Brutalismo es un estilo arquitectónico que surgió del Movimiento Moderno y que tuvo su auge entre las décadas de 1950 y 1970. En sus principios estaba inspirado por el trabajo del arquitecto suizo Le Corbusier (en particular en su edificio Unité d'Habiation) y en Eero Saarinen. El término deriva del francés béton brut u "hormigón crudo", usado por Le Corbusier para describir su elección de los materiales.

Top 10 of Brutalism. Brutalism’s bold, monumental, and on the whole, deadly serious style remains controversial, years after it was replaced by Post-Modernism and the Neo Vernacular style. Here is a mix of familiar and somewhat less well-known Brutalist buildings in London. Makes me think of the novel High Rise.
