    However, brutalist buildings need large spaces around them them to look good, preferably they should sit on a platform in a peripheral/remote place.
    And not destroy entire neighbourhoods like they do here. I think we should destroy most brutalist architecture here because they are built in those confined spaces where they create windswept conditions and a seriously bad vibe. It's those places that are usually the most blighted.

    Ilinden memorial in Krusevo. I agree it looks pretty ugly. Looks like something from a different planet. Something better could have been built to commemorate the people who lost their lives fighting the Turks in the Ilinden uprising.

    MyTrueAncestry modern populations:
    1. Macedonian (3.264)

    2. Romanian (4.819)
    3. Bulgarian (5.647)
    4. Bosnian (7.654)

    One "glorious" example would be the Utrecht Station Area (that's now being remodelled after it was whacked during the late 1960s to mid 1970s):










    And this what was destroyed for it:

    The above is less of an issue with the materials used and more a disconnect between the designer and what people might envisage the memorial intended to commemorate.
