Brutalism

BY EMMA BROOKE
@ VOL 103 ON MAY 29, 2013

When Emma Brooke turned 20 she suddenly fell madly in love - with concrete.  She describes the beginnings of her whirlwind love affair with the architectural style so called "Brutalism" for its callous, unfeeling, unyielding structural dominance.

BY CARL SERGIO
@ AIA 2014 CONVENTION ON JUN 26, 2014

Architect Carl Sergio travels the world listening to U2, channeling George Carlin and carrying a small backpack. He suggests everyone should try the challenge of breaking all of your belongings down, and only keeping 100 things. He is very indecisive when it comes to what kind of tea to buy in the supermarket because there are just too many choices.
