Brutalist Architecture cheek to cheek with Modern Designs


 What is ‘Brutalist architecture’, you ask. And we kindly answer because there’s why we’re here, to answer all your question. Brutalist architecture is a movement in the architecture field that flourished from the 1950s to the mid-1970s, descending from the modernist architectural movement of the early 20th century. And why to give this style such a strong name? The guilty was Le Corbusier (the renowned swiss-french architect) that described his choice of material as béton brut (raw concrete). After this, the British architectural critic Reyner Banham adapted the term ‘brutalism’ to identify this emerging style. Concrete and bricks are the main materials used by the creators of the Brutalism and you will be able to see numerous examples around the world but mainly in Britain, France, Germany, Japan, United States, Canada, Brazil, the Philippines, Israel and Australia. The thing is, there can hardly be a more controversial – or misunderstood – architectural movement than Brutalism.
