"This month, Phaidon released This Brutal World, celebrating this 20th-century postwar architecture. The book is by art director Peter Chadwick, who is behind the @BrutalHouse Twitter account and This Brutal House website, and is billed as a “curated visual manifesto featuring some of the most powerful and awe-inspiring brutalist architecture ever built.”"
Even while major Brutalist structures face preservation issues — like Marcel Breuer’s Central Library in Atlanta, whose fate is being decided now — the aesthetic of these concrete-based build…

The Macedonian Post building, in #Skopje, #Macedonia.

Designed by architect Kenzō Tange, the post office was part of a wave of #brutalist buildings erected in the city following a devastating earthquake in 1963.

"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

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.

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...
