"German artists Sabine Haubitz and Stefanie Zoche’s photographs of abandoned Sinai Hotels point to what might have been in the Egyptian desert. These large, artful, fashionably brutal, gothic and skeletal follies stand out in relief to the flat desert floor."

"Polish photographer Pawel Starzec has been exploring the culture and history of former Yugoslav countries for some time. He has documented the painful traces of the Bosnian war and more recently released Concrete, an extended study of Belgrade’s brutalist buildings. The photos were taken in Belgrade's well known Novi Beograd (New Belgrade) neighbourhood, but also in locations across the city which are rarely photographed but which shape the landscape of the city."

I really can't believe this. Incredibly ignorant! I know it's not brutalism, but it is an amazing piece oft architecture that needs to be safed!

Barnabas Calder writes: "I love Brutalism, and am increasingly clear that it is not merely the equal of any other period’s architecture, it is better. There has never been a more remarkable period of architectural achievement."
Everybody recognises Brutalist architecture – the massive concrete buildings that thumped their grey bulk into the heart of almost every city on Earth during the course of the 1960s and ’70s. Now they often look unloved: streaked with rain and dir...

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! You will get banned 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.

"The Brutiful Birmingham Action Group (see what they did there?) is fighting an uphill struggle to preserve the city’s best examples of 1950s and ’60s concrete and glass minimalism. At present Birmingham still has a good number of these. Thanks to a severe pounding by the Luftwaffe, much of the historic fabric of this major industrial city was lost during World War II. This wanton destruction at least gave the city a clean slate that in some cases turned out to be a backhanded advantage. In the 1950s and ‘60s, areas of squalid, meanly constructed back-to-back row houses were replaced with modernist housing projects that offered far better living conditions."
