Buildings typical of the current of brutalism

What is brutalism?

Brutalism is a style that emphasizes materials, textures, and coarse structures, creating large shapes.
The term first appeared in the late 1940s when Le Corbusier was working on the Unité d'Habitation in Marseille. It was first used by Alison Smithson in 1953 at Colville Place in Soho, England.

Features of brutalist architecture are:
-Rough surfaces
-Large and unusual shapes
-Expression of structures

Revival of brutalism in architecture

Since everything in the world of architecture is related to the re-evaluation of wildlife, the period of revival also proceeded relatively quickly.
The brutalist movement was popular from the 1950s to the mid-1970s and was often used institutionally. At that time, it was preferred to be used in schools, churches, public buildings and government buildings. In the 1980s, architectural trends quickly faded into obscurity as they set foot on the revival of an angry and old world. However, it should be noted that in a few years, brutalism may return to us as a stylistic example.

Brutalism is the techno-music of architecture

Brutalism is the techno music of architecture. Brutalist buildings are expensive to maintain and just as difficult to demolish. They cannot be easily reshaped or changed.
