I genuinely believe that the architects of the 1960’s genuinely believed that they were in a new paradigm and that brutalist architecture was the ultimate expression of man’s conquering technology to deliver functionality to the masses, Liberty Hall in that context is quite a soft expression with its proportioned plinth and crown. It could almost be described as a modern building that was compromised by Victorian influences represented by the copper crown and less impressive plinth.

No such excuses for the VHI that was cynical penny pinching; not that the VHI have been doing much of that with their premiums lately.
