A landmark survey of one of architecture's most controversial yet popular styles — in a great, new, classic edition
The Brutalist aesthetic is enjoying a renaissance — and this book documents Brutalism as never before. In the most wide-ranging investigation ever undertaken into one of architecture's most powerful movements, more than 850 Brutalist buildings — existing and demolished, classic and contemporary — are organized geographically into nine continental regions. Much-loved masterpieces in the UK and USA sit alongside lesser-known examples in Europe, Asia, Australia, and beyond — 102 countries in all, proving that Brutalism was, and continues to be, a truly international architectural phenomenon.
