Description

Titled The Dualities of Brutalism, it clearly defines Brutalism as “a classic ‘late style,’ sitting somewhere between Modernism’s high point and its final unraveling in what became Postmodernism. The author’s ambition to give equal space to as many architects as possible, unfortunately, left many of the iconic buildings that we associate with Brutalism out of the picture.

The book also highlights influential female architects, like Charlotte Perriand, who designed many radical buildings while working for Le Corbusier that the Swiss-French architect took credit for.Made from prefabricated concrete panels, Plattenbauten rose from the ruins of Berlin, providing a quick and inexpensive solution to the severe housing shortage faced by the city after World War II. 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.

She also gives lectures and leads architectural tours - including cycling ones - for the 20th Century Society. From the Ural Mountains to the Arctic Circle, the book contains over 100 photographs exploring the post-war modernist microrayons of the Siberian cities of Novosibirsk, Omsk, Krasnoyarsk, Norilsk, Irkutsk and Yakutsk and the quotidian lives of their inhabitants. Similarities as well as differences are explored and analysed using a series of impressive architectural projects. That a high proportion of the buildings which many generations of man-kind had agreed to regard as masterpieces failed to reach this exalted standard was held to be quite irrelevant. Through their analysis, Wilson and Green unpack the complexity of Brutalist architecture, providing valuable insights into the movement's lasting significance.As featured in the London Review of Books, ArchDaily, Dezeen, Wallpaper, World of Interiors, Design Boom, New York Times T Magazine and elsewhere.

Realised by Industry of All Nations, the California-based vacation rental blends into the desert canvas, owing to an earthy material palette, low-profile volume and eco-sensitivity.
