@Moss sweeping curves are difficult in poured concrete because building the formwork would be really complicated but a lot of the early brutalist buildings did have some curves and other neat ornament. i suspect that the later ones are more simple, geometrically, because of ideas that ornament is frivolous and that "the taxpayer" shouldn't have to pay for "frivolity".

in conclusion i love my big strong concrete sons and i blame most of their perceived shortcomings on the american right
