It amazes me how the brutalist architectural style is still alive and strong in 2008.

"Arguably a direct result of the economically depressed post-war American era, the brutalist movement incorporated the simplicity and bare bones attitude of the Depression evoked by the painful social and political repercussions of the 1960s overseas Vietnam War and domestic civil rights movement. This attitude is undeniably reflected in the movement's core, identifying design element of exposed skeletal and foundational structures and unprimed, or raw and uncovered." - helium.com

Uggh!

This is modern but not in the brutalist style. I've seen this structure and I think it will look alright.

The fire hall is looking really nice. I like it. Would be nice to have this fire hall a standard for each new station in Hamilton.
