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. Emma shows us some or her favourite examples of this architectural genre in both Japan and London.

British Brutalist Architecture

BY JON WRIGHT
@ VOL 15 ON JUN 12, 2017

"We've come so far in our taste and appreciation for these buildings that you can buy models of them."

In British Brutalist Architecture from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 15Jon Wright shares his love of Brutalist Architecture and in particular his love of the examples of this severe form of art in Britain.

Jon's PechaKucha helps to get rid of a few pervasive myths about Brutalism.

He also shows you what buildings we've lost (he would describe this as a disaster!), and how we saved the ones we do have with the meta-narrative being the cyclical nature of popular architectural taste and public opinion, how that is formed and how it manifests itself in popular culture.
