    The building has featured in a documentary because it's a hospital and falling apart...one feature of brutalist construction is a short shelf life...yet they look so solid...

    makes you wonder. Concrete and steel should not fall apart. Obviously, the consequences of 'budgetary demands'. It's like anything built. Unless the engineers made a huge mistake, they know exactly how to build it. Then the bean counters come in. In other places the contractors cheat. Again, makes you wonder: how do you come in so far under the other bidders? A real turkey * ehem* might even totally collapse. I tell customers that. You get what you pay for.

    This from a quick google- article sourced https://www.businessinsider.com.au/v...-turkey-2018-8
    "...the building was constructed illegally in 1994. It did not have an occupancy permit or a construction license while problems with its foundation were reported. To this day, it is not clear why authorities did not address the issue."

    The last line makes me laugh. Why wouldn't authorities address the issue? * ehem (again)*

    So many of this type of construction deteroiate with concrete cancer...which is where the reinforced steel within becomes rusty when the ice expands around it and cracks appear...

    The initial images remind me of downtown Los Angeles. While some of the city is contemporary —and certainly much of it appears to be perpetually under construction— there are many buildings that resemble this older architectural style. The sandcastle is stunning, what is the building used for?
