    Belgrade never had a Soviet era. It’s in Yugoslavia, which was at the time Titoist and opposed the Soviet Union.

    Communist era would be a better catch-all term.

    Like most brutalist architecture, clean the concrete and it looks fine. Let it go grey and it looks crap.

      Are there any orders Dublin councils can make telling owners to clean/tidy/paint their buildings?

    This is brilliant. @BrutalHouse is a great Twitter account if you’re into this sort of thing. Futuristic and nostalgic at the same time.

    There was a young man from Belgrade,
    Who kept a dead whore in a cave,
    She was moldy as sh*t,
    And missing a t*t,
    But just think of the money he saved.

    I expect that in thirty years people will be reviewing the current rash of glass buildings in the same way. And let’s not forget the wonderful air conditioning we are subjected to. There is that much wind and drafts you could hang a line of clothes out to dry.
