Bunkers, Brutalism and Bloody-Mindedness: Concrete Poetry With Jonathan Meades

Kanopy (Firm)

Summary
Every now and again, architecture goes through a phase of not caring whether it is liked. Employing shock tactics, it asks us to find beauty in what is commonly regarded to be ugly. In this series, writer and journalist Jonathan Meades explores the story of the Brutalist movement across Europe. He looks for its precursors in the Baroque and Modern Gothic movements, and the martial architecture of Freidrich Tamms. At the centre of the movement is the highly influential post war work of Le Corbusier who, Meades argues, led the way in the search for an impressive architectural style that could match the sublimity often sought in nature. Acknowledging that Brutalist buildings have often proved unpopular, Meades insists that now is the moment to re-engage with their magnificence.
