Brutalist Architecture

Brutalist Architecture is a style that emerged in the 1950s and 1960s, characterized by its rough, raw, and monolithic forms made of raw concrete materials. It is a style that emphasizes function over form and is often inspired by functionalism, the Bauhaus movement, and Constructivism. Brutalist buildings often feature large, block-like shapes with minimal ornamentation and a focus on the materiality and texture of concrete. The style was popular in the design of government buildings, public housing, and cultural institutions and is often associated with a sense of rugged, industrial strength, and urbanity.
