Brutalist architecture, which fell out of favor for a time and was considered dystopic, can be both powerful and poetic. This comprehensive survey covers why a past style of architecture is still so compelling. It brings to light virtually unknown Brutalist architectural treasures from across the former eastern bloc and other far flung parts of the globe. It includes works by some of the best contemporary architects including Zaha Hadid, David Chipperfield, Rem Koolhaas, and Herzog & de Meuron, as well as by midcentury masters including Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Kahn, Paul Rudolph and Marcel Breuer. The book takes readers all over the world, from Argentina, Nepal, North Korea, Serbia, India, to France, and, of course, to the United Kingdom and London. A curated collection of some of the most powerful and awe-inspiring Brutalist architecture ever built; This 224-page volume brims with 320 black-and-white photographs.
