Quoted @JoStructuraleye

First published last year, an interesting article on the commercialism around brutalism. The trend might now have moved onto POMO but I’m not too bothered with trends! - The obsession with brutalist architecture has gone too far https://www.iconeye.com/opinion/comment/item/13405-brutalist-architecture-obsession-too-far … via @iconeye

Sadly it does not mean that Brutalist buildings are respected and saved. Public Safety Building, Winnipeg Canada slated for demolition #sosbrutalism

Quoted @CTPrahaStCechy

Pražský obchodní dům Kotva slaví tento týden své 45. narozeniny. Stavba byla postavena v 70. letech 20. století v architektonickém směru brutalismu. U otevření byli i vojáci z nedalekých kasáren, kteří museli zadržovat davy lidí zvědavých na nabídku zboží.

After photographing the Economist Buildings in January I was keen to see more of Smithson’s work and before the last block gets demolished I shot the remaining Robin Hood Gardens.
