"CNN Style sat down with Wheatley to find out how the director crafted this schizophrenic love letter to concrete."
Welcome to the high-rise. The elevators haven't worked for weeks, there's class warfare and, starving, you're barbequing the dog. You've never been happier.

Columnist Robert Everett-Green sums up the arguments for and against saving the CBC’s brutalist Maison Radio-Canada.
Maison Radio-Canada has some heritage value, but whether it outweighs a chance to rectify a 1960s urban planning mistake is making for a lively debate

Long maligned as eyesores and an offence to human values, modernist architecture is enjoying a passionate upsurge in interest. John Harris visits Manchester and Sheffield to talk to the enthusiasts campaigning for these urban landmarks

About this community

This Community is all about Brutalist Architecture and Concrete Structures. The term "Brutalism" derived from the french term "béton brut" which means nothing else than decorative concrete. This architectural style emerged in the early 1950s and had its height in the 60s and 70s. Please no advertising! Will be deleted immediately. At *Discussion* you can post photographs of Concrete structures of these style. Please post mainly your own photographs. At *Weblinks* you can post every link that is connected to Brutalist Architecture. At *Events* I post actual events like exhibitions about brutalism.

That it's a city with a thousand faces, Belgrade has proven a million times. Recently, it has done so yet again! With a little help from Mirko Nahmijas, a talented and creative Belgrade-based photographer, Serbia's capital has this time decided to show us its “Star Wars” side.

"The young man behind the desk was a BRUTALIST. That’s what the button on his lapel said, although he looked friendly enough, with his nerd-chic black glasses and skinny frame. The building around us was another story: The newly opened Met Breuer museum is an odd hunk of concrete and granite. It stretches its brawny bulk up between the dowager apartment-houses of Manhattan’s genteel Upper East Side."
The city is leaning toward tearing down the Public Safety Building, but its cultural value shouldn’t be underestimated

"Many brutalist buildings were built during boom eras, designed with the confidence that budgets would always be generous enough to maintain them. But the oil crisis, mass unemployment and public budget cuts prevented this from happening, and many were left without proper maintenance. If a building from the late 19th century begins to falter, it looks romantic. But if a concrete building has cracks, it looks positively dangerous."
Brutalist architecture once led the way for cutting-edge design, but many today believe the style is the very embodiment of an eyesore. Now, however, a growing group of revivalists are showing their appreciation and respect for the much-maligned movement.

"Marcel Breuer, a Bauhaus-trained modernist, was a “starchitect“ in his day. At the end of his illustrious career, which included the signature Brutalist monuments of the Whitney Art Museum in New York City and the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, Breur’s office was approached by then-director of the Atlanta Public Library, Carlton C. Rochell, who sought “a world class building.”"
A petition urges the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System Board “to protect” the building “from demolition and damaging renovation."

"The 1975 novel High-Rise depicted an apocalyptic tower that drove its inhabitants insane. As a new film adaptation hits cinemas, we wonder what the author would have made of today’s rash of skyscrapers for the megarich"
