Brutalist architecture for a brutalitarian regime?

Supposedly the sharp corner of that wedge on the right has been blackened from so many the people touching it... like the way the feet of religious statues have been polished by the touches of the faithful.

So true, Franny Wentzel! Brutalist indeed!

County of Kings: 7th Jan 2015 - 04:01 GMT

Thanks for the tour, you really have a good eye and technique for shots.

Peter: 7th Jan 2015 - 04:38 GMT

Brutality is the American way! @frannywentzel! I like that tidbit of trivia, though. Just like the breasts of a famous statue at my university were rubbed gleaming for good luck. At least we weren't part of the NWO ;-0

Thanks @countyofkings. Just quick and dirty photos with my iPhone...!

The 'meat'n two veg' of the Botero statue Time Warner has been similarly polished...
