Buildings! Structures! Height, width, lack thereof! Elegance and simplicity!
What are your favorite architectural styles and your favorite buildings?
I like brutalism. The inhumanity of it, compared to a lot of other buildings that are supposed to look nice, is beautiful in its own right.
33 Thomas Street. This building hates you. It's in the middle of New York City and is a skyscraper without windows. It's extremely secure, with floors that can support 200-300 pounds per square foot.
Plaza tower/Crescent City towers. Marking the skyline of New Orleans since 1969, this building really does hate you. It's been plagued by mold and asbestos problems for years and hasn't been occupied since 2002 for these issues. It's up for sale, with bids ending September 20.
