Architecture Thread

I've recently been interested in brutalist architecture, so I figured why not make a architecture thread to help combat the forum's spam problem.

Re: Architecture Thread

dude, i saw the thread title and was just about to post brutalist stuff here big_smile both because it's cool, and also because ....................... it's the only architecture i know the name of, haha.

brutalism is cool because of all the geometrical shapes involved in it. but it's also a bit intimidating to me because ... well, they're giant buildings made of really strong/rough materials. like if you accidentally drive into my house, the walls will cave in immediately. if you drive into one of the above buildings, that building prooooobably isn't going anywhere.

Re: Architecture Thread

How dare you, SPAM is never a problem

You should check out this video where these guys explore an old brutalist Soviet monument. Very cool stuff

And if you haven't listened before, 99 Percent Invisible is a great podcast. The early episodes mostly covered different topics on architecture, but have more recently moved into just covering more general design stories. I particularly enjoyed their 2 part series on Usonia, which was a housing development project by Frank Llyod Wright. I found these houses to be really cool and ahead of their time, going against the idea of the typical "cookie-cutter" suburban homes of the time.

Re: Architecture Thread

Right on. I've been looking for some podcasts to listen to so I'll check it out smile

What got me interested in brutalism was this walking simulator I played called Brutalism: Prelude on Stone. It's an interesting game. If you have 20 minutes to kill I definitely recommend it. Download is here: https://moshelinke.itch.io/brutalism-prelude-on-stone

Re: Architecture Thread

Oh my goodness, those architecture buildings look extremely amazing and I wonder how long it will take for people to build those drop dead crazy architecture buildings anyway whoever built this must’ve been ridiculously strong my hats off to them.
