No, no it's not. ALL of the Seagram Building's facade is black, does that make it Brutalist? Absolutely not, it is literally one of the defining examples of international style and high modernism.

^ But the Seagram's black facade is all windows. The Verizon's facade is four fifths blank, and part windows (constituting the streaming vertical lines).

^^^ So then what does it having black portions of the facade have to do with it being brutalist? What you said sounded like you were saying "the facade is part black, therefore it is brutalist" and now you are saying "but not that much of the building is black, so it's brutalist" which seem to contradict to me.

not BLACK, BLANK. It's either your human mistake or mine.

This is the Samuel Bronfman building of Mc Gill Uninversity(1971)on Sherbrooke street in Montreal. That and a highrise hotel Royal Embassy, now a Best Western replaced the lovely Prince of Wales terrace houses that were built in 1860.







The Bronfman building isnt so bad, kind of non descript in an easy going way.
The hotel is highly disposable. I wouldnt mind being brutal to it the way it is with me.

Orange County, New York prefers ersatz Colonial over ur-Brutalist


03.08.2012

Read More: http://www.archpaper.com/news/articles.asp?id=5925

Quote:
Passing through the colonial charm of Main Street in Goshen, New York, the last thing you expect to find is a Brutalist masterwork, but there it is: Paul Rudolph’s 1971 Orange County Government Center, a series of long windowless boxes stacked ajar as if blown by the force of the cars whooshing past. From the parking lot, the composition reorganizes—transformer-like—into dozens of glass-fronted boxes still unevenly stacked. Over 80 individual roof planes cover the boxes. They leak. They leaked from day one. On April 5, legislators will vote whether to grind Rudolph’s multilayered concrete composition to dust and build anew.

Needless to say, preservationists are alarmed at the prospect of losing yet another Rudolph building in Orange County, having just lost the battle to save Chorley Elementary School in nearby Middletown. Chorley’s delicately exposed trusses beneath opposing angled rooftops gave that building a birdlike appearance. If Chorley looks as though it were about to take flight, then the monumental effort at the government center seems to convey the gravity of complex decisions being made inside, particularly through the variety of concrete. Several distinct combinations of aggregate and formwork butt up against corduroy split block.

Similar to the buildings listed earlier in Oakville, I'm sure these two in Toronto are by the same architect:

Also in Toronto (Sears Office Building):

There's also the Crossway's complex (complete with a ghetto-rific 1970's mall). - I'll post a pic later when I upload it.

Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts:



Oakville Central Library:



Oakville Centennial Pool:



All 3 were built as part of a big complex in Downtown Oakville for Canada's centennial in 1967.

My favorite example of brutalist architecture:

Tallinna Linnahall. It's a large concert and sports venue in Tallinn, Estonia. It was completed in 1980 and it really needs renovations.

Not sure if that really counts as "Brutalist"
Sport stadiums are always hard to pin down as they often end up as a Mish mash of different styles. (with a few notiable exceptions)

By the by, the photo's of Tallinna Linnahall are stunning.
One of the few VERY few Brutalist buildings I approve of. Yet liek so many others it looks in bad shape due to the cracking and staining concrete.

I think the West side of DKR is brutalist even though it is built on top of parts of the stadium that date back to the 20s and 40s. The other 75% of the stadium though is much newer and more architecturally in line with the Spanish Renaissance style of most of the rest of the campus.
