City Hall

.

Another Brutalistism building--the Beer Sheva City Hall, tower included.


On one side its Brutalistic architecture is softened by a dancing fountain, at least.

G is for gray, gray, gray  for ABC Wednesday.

The gray is rather sad feeling. Perhaps that's a comment on City Hall politics...

NOT the prettiest building...

The tower reminds me somewhat of a structure I've seen on one of the university campuses here.

I certainly understand why they call it Brutalism, but this one's interesting.

I do like that fountain in front of the building. It certainly does soften the look.

I really like the word Brutalistic. It describes horrors pretty well. Sorry to be so blunt :-(

Mersad said...

The facade is very unusual and unlike anything I have ever seen. Very interesting!

Ciel, blunt comments are welcome. In modern Israeli Hebrew, dugri language is the norm. Dugri is from the Arabic, meaning, literally, straight or straightforward.
You make me realize I must have made a Freudian slip when I wrote Brutalistic. Oi! The right word to describe this kind of architecture is Brutalist.

If this is City Hall, I can't imagine their prison...

Joy said...

It reminds me of a castle with a lookout, possibly a place to hide from the voters:-) I kinda like it.

It reminds me of a cross between an Israeli prison (10,000 Star Hotel) and an old British Mandate police compound (Mickey Mouse).

Not so nice building, but with the fontain it is better:-)

Was the architect born in a 'pill box' perhaps?
Dreadful, no excuse for that.
