Then you have the daddy of them all...



Designed by Bengt Edman & Lennart Holm in 1950, the Villa Göth in Uppsala was the first building to be referred to as Brutalist, by the architect Hans Asplund. He called it "nybrutalism" (new brutalism).

You can get a look into the house in this episode. It's from a swedish show called "Hustoppen" where two architects and one interior designer grade different houses. Two hosts show the houses and ask the owners questions.

That has brick, however. I wonder what the first raw-concrete building in the brutalist style was.

Golden Mile Complex, 1973, Singapore

http://www.dpa.com.sg/projects/golden-mile-complex/







Mixed use development, with a slanting form providing sky view of the sea at the back, and deep shade against the afternoon sun at the front. The deep skylight supposed to light up the interior of the building got blocked (or painted over) over time.

http://proconservation.blogspot.sg/2...e-complex.html

The rear of the building had since been modified by individual owners, adding extra rooms or new roofs to the balconies, and it had organically transformed into what looks like an aerial village.

King's College London.



I actually think its one of the best examples of Brutalism in the world, if you exclude the top section.

Toronto's Alan Brown building, also known as 77 Elm Street or the Nightmare on Elm Street. This is such a selfish building: disrupting a row of Victorian homes, providing no relationship to any end of the street (at grade on Elm there is a parking structure entrance and blank wall on 3 sides). It looks like a bunker straight out of the Soviet Union, treating the street like a war zone. Worst of all, it contributes to the deadening of Elm Street just prior to Toronto's row of hospitals. Just gross, but a perfect example of Brutalism.

This is the Knoll of Fraternity Memorial Complex in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Built-in 1974 and designed by architects Vladimir Rangelov & Lubomir Shinkov. There used to be an "eternal flame" in the centre to "light the bones of the fallen soldiers". It wasn't to be eternal though and was extinguished some time ago. The monument is now locked-up.

103 Colmore Row, Birmingham, UK

Another example of John Madin's contribution to the Birmingham skyline that has sadly been left to rot







Every part of this building was designed by this unnecessarily criticised architect:

Birmingham Central Library, UK

I know this has been posted previously, but some great working drawings from John Madin's Birmingham Central Library, UK. The inverted Ziggurat form is still unique to this day (Boston Town Hall also uses this form too in parts) but, having been refused listing status, this Birmingham landmark is now destined for the bulldozers! And a sad day it will be!!!












FYI, this is what has replaced it......
