Architecture usually has a spectrum of expression from very simple, to complex and “daring.” Brutalism (named after the French beton brut, or “raw concrete”) is a unique design style that somehow blends the simple with the extreme. While the design is daring, minimalism and flow are also emphasized. Brutalism was utilized mostly in the 1950’s to 1970’s. It was mostly utilized in government and education buildings, as well as high rises and shopping centers.
Greek designers Laertis-Antonios Ando Vassiliou and Pantelis Kampouropoulos of Open Platform for Architecture have created a more modern embodiment of the Brutalism concept. What does such a structure look like? Take a look.
