Atlas of Brutalist Architecture

From contemporary architects such as David Chipperfield and Tadao Ando, to twentieth-century masters including Marcel Breuer and Le Corbusier, Phaidon’s Atlas of Brutalist Architecture is a geographically-organized collection of nearly 900 brutalist buildings, a number of which are no longer standing. Presented in an oversized format, the book contains 1000 duotone photographs documenting the “graphic strength, emotional power, and compelling architectural presence” of the oft-polarizing Brutalist style, across over 100 countries. Including a brief on each building’s history and design intention, the structure’s condition, use, and status is also identified through the use of a clever atlas-style key.
