Quake Brutalist Jam

Make a map featuring concrete forms and strong geometric shapes after the style of the Brutalism architectural movement from post-war 1950s-70s.
“Brutalist buildings are characterized by minimalist constructions that showcase the bare building materials and structural elements over decorative design.” There’s a lot that can be left to interpretation in order to justify playable spaces and encounters for Quake, but overall the shape and scale of your forms should feel minimalist or monolithic. Get creative with some otherworldly megastructures if you like, or inexplicable floating void spaces! Just make sure to always return to the core design principles of Brutalism.
