Blue Crow Media have teamed up with the Twentieth Century Society and photographer Simon Phipps to bring you the Brutalist London Map. The guide features over 50 leading examples of Brutalist architecture from the National Theatre and Southbank Centre, the Barbican and Trellick Tower to lesser known buildings like the Elephant and Rhinocerous Pavilion at London Zoo, Hyde Park Barracks and Keeling House in Bethnal Green. Details for each building include the location, date, the architect or practice responsible and listing status.
Henrietta Billings, Senior Conservation Adviser, Twentieth Century Society said:
“This map is a fantastic opportunity to highlight some of London’s boldest and exciting post war buildings. Ten years ago this style of architecture was completely out of fashion, but now more and more people can see what’s great about these buildings. The map will help you find more examples than you ever knew existed.”
Two sided with a map on one side and text and photos on the other, it opens to 420mm x 600mm and folds down to 210mm x 150mm, and is protected by wide band. Priced at £8 plus shipping, it is available to buy online and at Foyles, RIBA’s shop and Stanfords.
