brutalism. with. plants.
@GreenandBlack what is/was that?
@frickhaditcoming photo on the left is of the conservatory in the barbican performing arts centre in London.
Photo on the right is a building in Barcelona
Oh gosh, it works.
THAT'S WHAT BRUTALISM WAS MISSING.
@GreenandBlack ppl often act all scared when they see images like this
or at least nihilistic but
idk to me it seems like a nicer place to live we should have plants everywherepls
@Mooncake cities shouldn't be built solely for humans, they should be built to fit all life that inhabits it
@GreenandBlack last aesthetic of humanity
@GreenandBlack can't wait for that future
@GreenandBlack is this solarpunk
@GreenandBlack I dream of a future that looks exactly like this
@GreenandBlack this is how brutalism is supposed to work. The building is a blank canvas.
@GreenandBlack The solarpunk future
@GreenandBlack my only acceptable form of brutalism. This is one I spotted at UCSD
@GreenandBlack this shit is my aesthetic tbh
@GreenandBlack at last, brutalism makes sense

@GreenandBlack I think I'm in love! 🤩
@GreenandBlack The building where I work is heavily brutalist-inspired. A terrasse was restored recently, with concrete tables, wooden benches, and a lot of bamboo pots, it is a surprisingly working aesthetic.
@GreenandBlack swear i saw this area in Nier Automata :o
@GreenandBlack yes excellent
@GreenandBlack There's a brutalist office building-turned-hotel near my workplace that tried to jazz things up by adding color and banners during the conversion, but this is so much better!
@GreenandBlack I should've said "tried to spruce things up."
Such an oximoronic statement and yet they go so good
@GreenandBlack I broke into that conservatory once by mistake.
@GreenandBlack i love this so much but i believe they must utilise native plants rather than just very pretty ones (not that natives cannot be very pretty, just that humans have a knack for preferring non-native plants) for it to truly benefit everyone
that said, the tropical plants are absolutely gorgeous
@GreenandBlack This is exactly what Sao Paulo gets right about brutalism, and exactly what London (mostly) gets wrong about it.
@GreenandBlack this but with native species for the environment the building is in and I am 9001% on board.
Sunbeam City is a Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance. It is ran democratically by a cooperative of like-minded individuals.
