Description

Atlas of Brutalist Architecture by Phaidon presents hundreds of brutalist masterpieces – existing and demolished – and their designers from different corners of the world. With over 1000 photos and detailed texts, the book creates a vast timeline of the history and present of brutalist architecture. Atlas of Brutalist Architecture was awarded as the Best Art Book of 2018 by The New York Times.

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 — 102 countries in all, proving that Brutalism was, and continues to be, a truly international architectural phenomenon.

Includes twentieth-century masters such as Marcel Breuer, Lina Bo Bardi, Le Corbusier, Carlo Scarpa, Ernö Goldfinger, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Kahn, and Paul Rudolph. Contemporary architects featured include Alvaro Siza, Coop Himmelb(l)au, David Chipperfield, Herzog & de Meuron, Jean Nouvel, SANAA, OMA, Renzo Piano, Tadao Ando, and Zaha Hadid.
