Brutalist architecture is a style of architecture which flourished from the
1950s to the mid 1970s, spawned from the modernist architectural movement.
Boston City Hall, part of Government Center, Boston, Massachusetts
(Gerhardt Kallmann and N. Michael McKinnell, 1969). The structure illustrates
typical (but not necessary) Brutalist characteristics such as top-heavy massing, the use of slender base supports, and the sculptural use of raw concrete.
The architectural style known as Brutalism or The New Brutalism is more related to the theoretical reform
of the CIAM than to "béton brut“ raw, unfinished concrete.
Trellick Tower, London, 1966-1972, designed by Erno Goldfinger.
