New print launched today - 'Brutalism' May 21 2015
The fourth in our 'Blueprint' series celebrates some of our favourite Brutalist buildings and their architects. The term originates from Le Corbusier 'béton brut' meaning "raw concrete" used when describing one of his favourite choices of material. The term has been used to cover a movement in post-war British architecture and many governmental and institutional buildings around the world from the 60's and 70's that are fortress-like and modular with concrete as their predominant material.
Ernö Goldfinger's Trellick Tower in London and the Weiss Science Tower in New York are a couple of our favourites and we selected our top ten and represented them here in plan form as part of our continuing series.
