Join author of Concretopia John Grindrod as he takes you on a journey past the tough façade of one of the world’s most maligned architectural movements with How To Love Brutalism.
In 1948 Swiss-French architect and urban planner Le Corbusier chose not to clad the Unite d’habitation in Marseille and a new architectural style was born. Characterized by concrete, geometrical shapes and sheer elevation, Brutalism remains divisive to this day.
For this event, John Grindrod strips Brutalism back - getting to the nitty-gritty of the people and ideals behind the buildings; the culture surrounding the movement and its global impact, physically and on the architectural world.
The evening will be chaired by Catherine Croft, the Director of Twentieth Century Society.
Tickets: £5 standard.
Venue: Level 6, Foyles 107 Charing Cross Road
