a) So modern, so noble; let me grab my camera
b) Yikes, that’s something straight out of my worst dystopian nightmare
c) Don’t know much about it, but I’d love to learn
If you answered a, b OR c, join our guides for an On-site, Online, On Foot experience to explore five iconic Brutalist buildings (including the only Le Corbusier-designed structure in North America).
