Description

A landmark survey of one of architecture’s most controversial yet popular styles – in a great, new, classic editionThe Brutalist aesthetic is enjoying a renaissance – and this book documents Brutalism as never before. In the most wide-ranging investigation ever undertaken into one of architecture’s most powerful movements, more than 850 Brutalist buildings – existing and demolished, classic and contemporary – are organized geographically into nine continental regions.Much-loved masterpieces in the UK and USA sit alongside lesser-known examples in Europe, Asia, Australia, and beyond – 102 countries in all, proving that Brutalism was, and continues to be, a truly international architectural phenomenon.Includes twentieth-century masters such as Marcel Breuer, Lina Bo Bardi, Le Corbusier, Carlo Scarpa, Ernoe Goldfinger, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Kahn, and Paul Rudolph. Contemporary architects featured include Alvaro Siza, Coop Himmelb(l)au, David Chipperfield, Herzog & de Meuron, Jean Nouvel, SANAA, OMA, Renzo Piano, Tadao Ando, and Zaha Hadid.Praise for previous edition:The New York Times Best Art Book of 2018″Newcomers will discover the global influence of brutalism, that final age of civic architectural ambition; true believers can use it to prepare years of concrete-coated vacations.” -The New York Times
