Architecture; History of architecture
The Brutalist aesthetic is enjoying a renaissance - and this book documents Brutalism as never before. In the most wide-ranging investigation ever undertaken into one of architecture's most powerful movements, more than 850 Brutalist buildings - existing and demolished, classic and contemporary - are organised geographically into nine continental regions. Much-loved masterpieces in the UK and USA sit alongside lesser-known examples in Europe, Asia, Australia and beyond - 104 countries in all, proving that Brutalism was, and continues to be, a truly international architectural phenomenon.

Reviews for Atlas of Brutalist Architecture: The New York Times Best Art Book of 2018

Brutalism was mocked and misunderstood. But it produced some of the most sublime, awe-inspiring buildings on the planet. --Jonathan Meades, BBC TV Brutalist architecture arouses passion and fury in equal measure. --Financial Times It is damned by its name which comes from the French, b�ton brut, or raw concrete, but we use the same word (Brut) to describe Champagne and this perhaps sums up the dichotomy at the heart of this style. --Financial Times
