Concrete Concept: Brutalist Buildings Around the World | Christopher Beanland
Why Brutalism? Why not?
Another architectural cracker from Christopher Beanland. In this handsome, freshly re-published hardback, we are presented with fifty incredible Brutalist buildings from around the world. Straddling the globe and taking in both the carved in concrete classics (Unité d'Habitation, The Barbican, Preston Bus Station, etc.) and the buildings deserving of more attention (the windowless skyscraper and former At&t building in NYC), this book presents an informative and fascinating guide to a much-maligned and often divisive architectural movement.
Oh, and if you're wondering, the Brutalist buildings of Leeds University do make the list - and quite right too!
