    UW Mathematics and Computer building

    created by fianat69 on 2012.05.28

    These MOC was built by fianat

    Hello! こんにちは! Salut! Hola!

    My MOC is a micro scale model of the University of Waterloo Mathematics and Computer Science building. The base is 57x 34 studs. The building consists of 1600 bricks.
    The MOC is the same size as the TLG set- Robie House.

    Some facts:

    Location: ............................... Waterloo, Ontario
    Date: ..................................... --- to 1968
    Building Type: .......................university building
    Style: .....................................brutalism
    Materials ...............................stone, glass, wood, concrete

    Why I chose this building?

    I was browsing the Internet for an idea but couldn’t decide on anything. It was my elder brother who gave me a tip. He suggested that I should make one of the campus buildings of UW, where he’d got his diploma. I liked Maths and Computer Science building, which is a typical example of brutalism, most of all and immediately got to work. Hope you like it!

    Why Brutalism?

    Most people strongly criticize Brutalism, calling it ugly piles of steel and concrete. But I don’t think it is so harsh and hostile after all. Aesthetics of Brutalism appeals to me. I am fond of clean lines and simple geometric forms. Of course I wouldn’t call Brutalist buildings beautiful. What I like them for is the fact they reflect our life style. We tend to choose functional things at reasonable prices nowаdays, don’t we? I agree with a French architect Charles Edouard Jeanneret, better known as Le Corbusier, who considered all buildings to be tools and said: “A house is a machine for living in." And brutalist buildings are cheap and functional.
