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 organized 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.
