The term "Brutalism" is used to describe a form of architecture that appeared, mainly in Europe, from around 1945-1975, and aroused extremes of emotion and debate. This book continues the debate to the modern day, studying a number of key buildings and developments in the fields of civic, educational, commercial, leisure, private, and ecclesiastical architecture. It is now possible to view the movement with a degree of rational reappraisal, study how the style evolved and gauge its effect on Britain's urban landscape.
