There is a genuine resurgence of interest in this period of architecture. Brutalism is a highly debated topic in the architectural press and amongst architectural critics and institutions who promote the preservation of these buildings. This book is unique in combining beautiful, highly illustrated design with description of both British and International brutalist buildings and architects, alongside analysis of the present and future of brutalism. Not just be a historical tome, this book discusses brutalism as a living and evolving entity.
It includes interviews with the surviving architects or their collaborators and contemporary practices involved in the conservation and redevelopment of brutalist buildings and gives insight into the history of the period as well as a greater understanding of how these buildings were designed and constructed.
Launch Price £25 (RRP £30)
