»Brutalist architecture is very upfront, bold and fearless. I’m intrigued by its absolute refusal to please, strict geometrics, the clashing of the brutal and the sensuous.«

I capture the raw beauty and bold geometrics of Brutalist architecture from Switzerland, Britain and elsewhere on my Instagram account @heartbrut (formerly @play_hunter – handle still accessible) – and my new website HEARTBRUT.

BRUTALISM

Monumental monoliths, archaic anti-aesthetics and exposed concrete – these are the characteristics of Brutalist architecture. Inspired by Le Corbusier’s directional postwar buildings, the British-born brand of Modernism popped up cityscapes around the world from the fifties. Its unapologetic rawness polarises to this day. Showing their age, many of the buildings face demolition or rebirth as luxury housing. At the same time, Brutalism is finally getting the attention and rehabilitation it deserves, as a new, global following comes to appreciate the spare elegance, honesty and visionary ethics behind the rough appearance.
