Brutalism (415)


This “apology” for Brutalism by Darren Bradley is useful:

For example: “Architects saw themselves as social engineers, shaping the way people lived.”

Who does this remind you of?

Also, recall the language we developed in class to describe  the mise-en-scene of Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise: rectilinear, functional, pristine.

The German Romantic writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once called architecture “frozen music.”

What kind of music does Brutalism make?
