Description

An authoritative overview of an increasingly popular period of British architecture from a leading architectural historian.

Brutalist architecture is more popular now than ever. This beautifully photographed book looks at Britain's finest brutalist buildings from the 1950s to the 1970s, featuring imposing and dramatic public buildings--like London's National Theatre and Liverpool's Metropolitan Cathedral--along with lesser-known buildings such as Arlington House on Margate's seafront, as well as houses and flats, shops, markets, town centers, and more. This book provides a fascinating overview of a postwar urban landscape, while an introduction places British brutalism within the context of global events and contemporary world architecture.
