Massive, Expressive, Sculptural – Brutalism: Now and Then, is a conveniently thick volume, wrapped in a clear-cut hard-back cover, in accordance with what were going to be dealing with inside. The rise and quick fall of brutalist architecture within the span of two decades (1960s – 1970s) was thought of as the end of it. But apparently, the powerful impressions left thereafter by the raw-looking variations and imposing greatness of béton brut have triggered a new surge of interest. In 300 pages, Brutalism: Now and Then offers a comparative outlook on the differences and similarities between some of the undervalued brutalist buildings of the past and some of the most successful brutalist architecture and design of the moment.
