I’ve been researching architecture for my Final Major Project at uni. I have been looking at tower blocks, flats and oppressive buildings and I came across Brutalist architecture.
Brutalism is a type of architecture that came out of the modernist movement, this specific type prevailed between the 1950's - 1970-s.  It's hard to see past the dull concrete, blockish appearance, but when you do these buildings are quite impressive. Here are some examples... 
Brunel Uni,  London (above) features in A Clockwork Orange – which happens to be the subject of my dissertation. This location as well as the second below are included in the Top 10 Brutalist attractions in London.
