DDubzD continues his "Then/Now" photo series in the Times with a look at how Le Corbusier-inspired Brutalism is holding up: "Like other architectural styles that were widely reviled after their heyday, Brutalism shows signs of becoming an endangered species. The question is not only whether examples of the style will be appreciated some day, but whether they will even survive long enough to get the chance to be." The brutal Youth Residence Center of the Jewish Child Care Association on the UES was razed in 2003, and the Manhattan Family Court downtown was made less brutal two years ago. [NYT]
