We haven’t yet seen a copy, but we are expecting great things of Concrete Concept – Brutalist Buildings From Around The World by Christopher Beanland, which is published by Frances Lincoln.
It sounds like a pretty good place to start when it comes to brutalism too. The 192-page book profiles 50 of the finest brutalist buildings from around the world – from Preston Bus Station to Brasilia’s Pálacio de Justiça and beyond. Each one demonstrating just how brutalism has infected popular culture and provoked so much reaction, both positive and negative.
If that’s not enough, there is the added bonus of an A-Z of brutalist architecture from the one and only Jonathan Meades.
We might well have a review of the book online before the release date of 4th February 2016. But if you want to go ahead and order one, you can pre-order a copy right now for £20.
