60s Concrete

60's concrete

*beauty or ugly? is in the eyes of the beholder*

Majority of modern buildings here are from the 1960s. Can't say I like them design... but it was an era of renewal of life for the people and the town after a long halt since WWI&II*. It was then that the businesses start to flourish, all of which ensured the continuous development of our town.

correction : only WWI

Hi Kris,
Nice shot and great composition. I thought everything in Hungary was state controlled in the 1960s, maybe I'm wrong?

Kris said...

Bob : you're right! the Soviets arrived in Szentes in the late 40s. Only in the 60s several companies were established. Which see more some development but of course at a slower speed :)

Andreea : thanks for the address :)

beautiful shot! I love 60s architecture. there's something about the lines and shapes that were used. controlled structure in a time of renewed human expression. where do these steps lead to? to the rostrum of the building above? to the basement?

Edwin : That's a 2 separate buildings actually ;) i do prefer the lines and clean design of the 60s ; however some have weirdly designed features..

Thank you all for stopping by :)
