Brutalist Architecture

Phaidon, 2014

Brutalist Architecture is a movement, which was developed in the late 50s early 70s in an expression of freedom and modernism and change after experiences of the war.

The design features a bold use of raw materials and angular, geometrical shapes.

Many people at the time found these building to be ugly and grotesque, but over time they have become a vintage beauty.

I personally love the aesthetics of Brutalist architecture. The shapes are simple, but bold and effective. Each building is striking and unique.

The raw textures created from the materials used really bring a grunge, omniscient feel. The buildings are exposed. It is amazing to think of the possibilities that these architects have created and the inspiration they can bring to so many others, including me.
