I agree. A super bright white could have made it look futuristic and more modern.

My studio was in charge of the renderings for the Apparel Marts interior and exterior renovations and we tested a TON of options. White looked really bad. My favorite was super dark grey, almost black. Really wish they would of went with that. Sorry to be off topic.

The reason none of these colors work is bc painting a brutalist concrete building is a really bad idea.

I could see dark gray/black being a good color for this turd. From far away it might have even passed for a Miesian box.

I can't think of another color that would be better. Bare concrete might have looked nice, but that decision was made for us many moons ago. Can't un-ring that bell, lol

It's not a brutalist building. It's just regular shitty modernism without any of the fun brutalist flair

The Godfrey hotel siding seems like it would have been a good fit.

I've never seen what people's thoughts are on the Godfrey around here. Do people like it or not? To me, it's kind of weird looking, but it comes across as fun to me

I quite enjoyed watching it billow in the wind - the new gray stuff - meh.

Wrong. The original building was a brutalist building. Windows were then cut out of it which turned it into faux modernism. Now with the paint job it looks like a suburban hospital.

I think it's interesting. I like the narrow facade. All the huge cross-bracing makes it looks over-engineered - like it's built to withstand a 9 point earthquake or something.
