Beijing is getting a new airport:





Yeah, right- that's a top secret spy base or an alien autopsy facility or a launchpad for some kind of superweapon that does mind control or something.

Post all of your favourite evil buildings here please.

I loved this THPS level though.

It's actually a bonus level in Snooker 19. It's the one set inside Willie Thorne's shed.

If someone can tell me how to post pictures on here, I can upload some from my own personal stash of sinister buildings. Brutalist and Mid-Century architecture is my forte.

Upload image somewhere. (e.g. https://imgur.com/)

Right click image when it's uploaded, and copy the image location.

Post like so:
Code: [Select]
[img width=600]https://example.com/path/to/image.jpg[/img]

(Try 'Quote' on one of the posts above to see what they had to write to make images appear in to their posts, if you'd rather learn from actual examples.)

Great Pulteney Street in Bath (viewable on Streetview here) is a pretty unsettling walk. The mixture of rigid structural and rectilinear conformity and column-effect stonework makes it feel like the sort of place all the top-ranking civil servants would live in the british province had the Nazis won the war:





I really like Senate House in London (and much of Charles Holden's other work, not least some outstanding Tube stations on the Piccadilly Line), but can see why it served as the inspiration for the Ministry of Truth in 1984:

The Purley Centre, Marsh Farm, Luton. When I was working in nearby Sundon Park, I used to go past this on the bus, and got the feeling it was the place where all hope goes to die. I believe it's since been demolished.



I don't want to imagine how grim the inside of that pub was.

There was also a school around there that from the outside resembled a maximum security prison.

These fucking monstrous "pencil towers" housing the super-rich. Not just sinister because they're built by and for total cunts, but primarily because they look like Arrival-esque alien craft, towering over the city in a completely blank, faceless sort of way, containing some as yet unknown horror ready to unleash upon the unsuspecting world around it. I saw one of them being built in Manhattan and then I came home and went out to a job in East Croydon - a pant-shittingly grim experience in its own right - and was horrified to see two of the cunts going up there as well. They scare the crap out of me. Do not like them one bit.

Interesting article about them here.

It sounds silly but I used to get a bit creeped out sometimes walking past the Houses of Parliament at night. Just the way it's lit from below like that, glowering at you from across the river:
