@GreenandBlack Who would have thought that all Brutalism needed was some greenery. These look beautiful!


Oh gosh, it works.


@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 @Sylvhem Yeeeeeeessssss. I love this aesthetic. Ground cover spilling over the top of a concrete wall is 😙👌.

@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!

Such an oximoronic statement and yet they go so good

@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.

@GreenandBlack Literally I would love to live anywhere if I have a roof over my head, a bed, internet, my Thinkpad and four walls around me with a door and few windows.

@GreenandBlack The parking deck for portland's airport is kinda like that and it's sweet.
