But what I find particularly vital in Hopkins’s text is his penetrating observation that “While architecture before the advent of Brutalism had largely been governed by systems—Classical, Gothic, even Modernist—Brutalists invented the architectural one-off, the building as pure sculpture.With over 1000 photos and detailed texts, the book creates a vast timeline of the history and present of brutalist architecture.

Instead, it puts the spotlight on 50 key buildings, connecting them with seven academic essays that look deep into French culture’s relationship with architecture, modernity, and social change. The stunning, 560-page coffee table tome shares more than 850 buildings, some which still exist and others that have been destroyed, that put the style on full display the world over. In spite of some oversights here and there and shortcomings with some of the photographic angles etc this is essential reading for Brutalist fetishists and architecture enthusiasts alike.

They tend to express sculptural qualities more due to their greater emancipation from their function than other buildings. Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall). It also illustrates how, despite vast differences in political ideologies, both East and West Berlin employed remarkably similar approaches to the creation of new urban spaces.

Phaidon announce their latest photo-book - a global survey of Brutalist architecture, based around 878 buildings from 798 architects, and ranging across 102 countries. A collection of illustrated cut-out paper models celebrating the post-war modernist architecture of Warsaw, Poland. The stunning, 560–page coffee table tome shares more than 850 buildings, some which still exist and others that have been destroyed, that put the style on full display the world over. Featured architects include: John Andrews; João Batista Vilanova Artigas; Lina Bo Bardi; Bogdan Bogdanović; Marcel Breuer; Douglas Cardinal; André-Jacques Dunoyer de Segonzac; Bertrand Goldberg; Ernő Goldfinger; Jadwiga Grabowska-Hawrylak; Agustín Hernández Navarro; John M.

The best brutalist buildings were an aesthetic and programmatic response to a more egalitarian society, free from the hierarchies of traditional architectural design. At least one project, a private house, Casa Zicatela, designed by Ludwig Godefroy and built in Oaxaca, Mexico, in 2015, is illustrated in six(! On the other hand, given that PHAIDON already published its encyclopedic Atlas of Brutalist Architecture in 2018 with the following reprint edition in 2020, which includes nearly 900 buildings by almost 800 architects, it is understandable that the new book on the same subject would need to have a new angle instead of trying too hard to be all-encompassing.
