    Don't get me started on 1960's architecture, let alone 1970's architecture!

    OK, your shot is a fine example of retro architecture which is aping the art-deco movement of the 1920's which in turn is aping the Greek classical....

    OK, I'll be serious. How about this monstrosity of the "Brutalist in your face School", just outside Gloucester. Vile, isn't it? This is a good idea for a thread. May I take it you don't mind others posting shots?

    Rob,Please feel free to expand the thread with other pic's.I love the irony of them boarding up that building,they should have left the vandals in to eat it away from the inside.Having said that ,the square tower and the pitch of the roof reminded me of some Italian old churches I've seen.

    I see what you mean - there is a similarity in general style. I suppose there is nothing original in the world!
