The halls of ivy (in Beer Sheva)

.
The entire campus of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is made up of Brutalist buildings.
But just here, in Building 72 (in which the Archaeology department is located!), some ivy has creeped in and up to give a softening effect.

One of our campuses has a lot of ivy on the buildings, even the newer ones. Strange to see it on this kind of architecture.

The ivy does indeed soften the brutalist style of architecture AND gives the campus an important scholarly feel.

I do like the look of Ivy on buildings. It doesn't seem to happen much around here in central CA but there are a lot of ivy covered buildings in the east coast.
