    @olga_kysil brutalist architecture can look, well, brutal sometimes. There are some amazing looking buildings in ex socialist countries.

    speaking of concrete, my elementary school, built in ’75. the roofs were flat before and nothing was painted (green on the bottom floor).

    Have to agree, some brutalism can look very attractive, especially when its combined with nice large feature type glass windows.  Contrete and modern glass can look extremely effective, especially when its surroundings – eg the gardens are well maintained.  Just look up the Barbican Centre in London.

    I actually think in some areas of Eastern Europe, they should install vertical gardens on the lesser maintained or lesser visually appealing concrete apartment complexes. I think it would totally transform the grey cities into something quite visually appealing.

    Visual appeal isn’t really the first thing Eastern Europeans have to worry about.

    @dusan Your school looks great! You should see the ugly schools in USA. Many are old and falling down. Sad.

    @srdceleva you mentioned multiple times you’ve played tennis when you were younger and wrote on tennis players on several occasions. What’s your take on this Serena Williams thing that happened in the US Open Finals?
