Oakland Museum, Oakland, California, 1969
(Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo Associates)
One of the best-run museums in the West, if not the U.S. Also, probably one of the few Brutalist structures that’s harmonious with nature, now that everything is grown in.
May 9, 1945, La Rochelle, France. Five years after being crushed by the Blitzkrieg in 1940, the remaining B1 bis behemoths celebrate victory day. Notice the German helmet used as trophy and the hastly painted American markings.The white stars were added because some Whermacht units used captured B bis tanks too.
