Saving the Concrete Monsters: A Look at Brutalist Architecture with SOS Brutalism

Fritz Gerhard Mayr / Fritz Wotruba, Vienna; Austria: 1974–1976

Since the 1950s, some of the most striking buildings ever produced have come out of the architectural movement known as Brutalism. Big, imposing, and seemingly impenetrable, these buildings certainly seem to fit the name their movement was given. However, the name “Brutalism” doesn’t actually refer to the buildings uncompromising aesthetics. Rather, it comes from the French word for raw, brut, and refers to the raw, exposed concrete and brick used in these buildings’ construction.
