    I have no idea what this building is, but I think it fits the description. Sorry the orientation is off.

    3/13/2022 - Brutalist

    Minton-Capehart Federal Building, 575 N Pennsylvania, Indianapolis. I started my Federal career here in 1976 with the Social Security Administration. The building was only two years old then.

    More examples in my Strava of this architectural style which was popular in the earliest phase of Restonís development. (Canít believe I let my kids play on the concrete climbing structure in the foreground, back in the day!)

    The Ariel Rios Federal Building on New York Avenue NE in NoMa was constructed in 2008 with a Brutalist exterior. It houses the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and is banned after an ATF undercover special agent who was killed in action in 1982.

    Standing by several Brutalist buildings today made me better appreciate that feeling of permanence evoked by large agglomerations of concrete. I'm not sure if the plants on the ATF building would push it into the territory of so-called eco-Brutalism. Concrete is certainly not the most environmentally friendly construction material, but leads to an interesting effect.

    We have two in one photo here. The combined Columbia Pike Library/Career Center in the foreground, and the multi-storied office building behind it in the background. Both of raw concrete, with no color.

    ďBritish Columbia's Arthur Erickson designed the Embassy of Canada with long horizontal shapes and wide open spaces. Despite it being Brutalist, former U.S. Secretary of State James Baker described the structure positively, saying, "I think [it] conveys the warmth and the openness of the people of Canada."

    Still out here ridiní! Bathrooms at Jones Point are a nice place to warm up and load photos.

    3-13 Brutalist architecture

    Luckily, Eugene Sternberg, a European architect, who moved to Colorado after WWII, had a brutalist period during the 70s. He did a few significant buildings around Littleton. Here is Heritage high school. I originally thought I would share the community college photo, but it was so drab with just concrete, that I liked this one with some color and nice statue in the foreground
