Om How to Love Brutalism
A passionate and personal book about the writer's own love for a controversial architectural style.Whether you love or hate brutalistbuildings, this book will explain what it is about them that elicits such strong feeling. You will understand the true power of concrete and of mammoth-sized buildings, but also some of the more subtle aspects of brutalist buildings that you may not have known or considered.Brutalist architecture, which flourished in the 1950s to mid-1970s, gained its name from the term ' Bton- brut', or raw concrete - the material of choice for the movement. British architecturalcritic Reyner Banhamadapted the term into 'brutalism' (originally 'New Brutalism') to identify the emerging style. The architectural style - typified by buildings such as Trellick Tower in London and Unit D'Habitation in Marseille - is controversial but has an enthusiastic fan base, including the author who is on a mission to explain his passion.John Grindrod's book will be enlightening for those new to the subject, bringing humour, insight and honesty to the subject but will also interest those already immersed in built culture. Illustrated with striking drawings by The Brutal Artist, the book is divided up into a series of mini essays that explains the brutalist world from a human aspect, as well as an architectural, historical and even pop cultural angle. The book journeys from the UK to discover brutalism and its influence around the world - from Le Corbusier's designsin Chandigarh, India, to Lina Bo Bardi's buildingsin Brazil.
