BLOG BEING UPDATED - TRY AGAIN LATER This blog records the controversial era of British architecture, 1960's Brutalism. Many Brutalist buildings have been demolished and many still are under threat
I have created this blog to help stimulate debate regarding the controversial 'Brutalist' architectural style so often demonised without consideration of its true merits. Yet more and more people are expressing an admiration for the style, showing that tastes are changing, making it a necessity to re-evaluate our attitude to brutalist buildings so often dismissed. Brutalism is a historical style like any other and thus is just as worthy of preservation and retention for the benefit of future generations.
