SOS Brutalism
€ 68,-

For the past sixty years the emergence of the “beton brut” architecture struck a new trend and continues to impress the eye by the sheer magnitude and uncompromising mass of its structures. But the brutalist monuments are increasingly threatened by demolition or transformation. This comprehensive book is published jointly with the Deutsches Architekturmuseum exhibition on the topic, opening in November 2017 and running until 2nd of April 2018. It comprises analytical essays explaining the value and historical appeal these monuments have, in addition to a series of case studies on the brutalist Churches, post-war Japanese architecture, and an expansive section on how was brutalism expressed in each region of the world.
