Brutalist architecture, or Brutalism, is an architectural style which emerged in the mid-20th century and gained popularity in the late 1950s and 1960s. It descended from the modernist architectural movement of the late 19th century and of the first half of 20th century. It is characterized by simple, block-like structures that often feature bare building materials. Exposed concrete is favored in construction, however some examples are primarily made of brick.

For decades brutalist architecture was a symbol of the underclass. Soulless, gray, crumbling concrete structures were something to escape from. Today, however, brutalism is back in style. In an age where gentrification is a dirty word, these hulking masses represent an extraordinary period of incredible optimism and determination to use architecture to transform society. London treats its brutalist buildings with care and respect. With dozens of these structures now heritage listed, it has become a haven for the concrete explorer. Like many of Goldfinger’s buildings, Trellick aimed to provide modern, well-equipped, affordable flats for those who lost their homes in the Second World War. Centre Point. Completed in 1966, Centre Point was one of London’s first skyscrapers.

In our series on architectural movements and styles, Melissa Harrison explains Brutalist architecture using 10 key examples throughout the world. The concrete monsters produced by the British New Brutalism movement are beloved by many and also hated in equal numbers – and the chasm between both groups is wide and filled with controversy.

Brutalist Architecture in the Sun. Post Democracy EP1. Overview (current section).

A guide to finding brutalist architecture in London, including Trellick Towers, the Hayward Gallery and the Barbican Centre. Much maligned, yet increasingly loved, brutalist architecture continually divides opinion. A quote by Jonathan Foyle, chief executive of the World Monuments Fund Britain said humorously, It is damned by its name which comes from the French, béton brut, or raw concrete, but we use the same word to describe Champagne and this perhaps sums up the dichotomy at the heart of this style

Examples of brutalist architecture can be found across Europe, and in the United States, Australia, Israel, Japan, and Brazil. One of the most defining features of this look is the use of raw concrete that makes the building appear as though it consists of many identical modular elements. They are unpretentious and often a bit stark in appearance. The Hubert H. Humphrey Building is a low-rise brutalist structure located in Washington DC. It is the site of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, and it was named after a former vice president of the United States. Marcel Breuer designed the building, and it was completed in 1977.
