NOW: BRUTALIST BEAUTIES POSTCARD EDITION


»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.«

BRUTALIST BEAUTIES

I capture the raw beauty and bold geometrics of Brutalist architecture from Switzerland, Britain and elsewhere on my Instagram account @play_hunter. The six-piece postcard edition BRUTALIST BEAUTIES unites iconic brutes from Zurich and the UK capital, such as the National Theatre and Hardau. Printed in small quantity in London, the silky, soft-touch finish cards appeal as collector’s items and gifts, making it easy to show and send your Brutalist love.

BRUTALIST BEAUTIES is available as single cards, Zurich Set, London Set and the bestselling Complete Set.

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.
