le béton brut (2)


( this is the main building of the post office in mannheim. most people think it is really ugly, an eyesore, as most buildings built in the 80's. but i really like it, especially that it was all made out of raw concrete what reflects a special kind of "honesty". the most impressive thing about this building is the sculptural style of the facades which are designed with these cool concrete patterns and primary colors. yes, i'm a great fan of brutalist architecture.. )
