Brutalist Buildings in Your Region

Edited and links updated 12/29/2010:

Brutalism: Sculptural, geometric, massive urban playgrounds made of concrete, places where skateboarding would be a blast (and probably banned), or smaller-scale exercises in form and space. Since brutalism's heyday in the 1960's and 1970's, Pittsburgh has seen a rich variety of brutalist structures go up, and I'm interested in how many buildings of this type exist in other cities, especially new projects. Please post images of your favorites (or least favorites).

I'll get the ball rolling with my school:

Carnegie Mellon University: Wean Hall
