Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Worst place I ever lived for an extended period of time was a 1970's huge Warsaw plattenbau apartment complex - soul deadening ugliness and shoddiness.

Yeah right, and you only lived in them when they were new!

By the way, Marek, you are just the right person to ask this.

What would be the best English word to use for Plattenbau? I am always confused what to use when talking of one in English.
