Befriend Brutalism on Facebook

August 22, 2010

Just recently we received a tip-off about a group called “The Brutalism Appreciation Society” on the social networking website Facebook. The page is administered by a Brit, who has posted hundreds of photos of Brutalist buildings in the UK. “Friends” are encouraged to post their own photos, so quite a number of US examples appear as well—currently the gallery is 2,000+ images. If you’re a Facebook user, login and join 1,100 others in supporting this very undervalued subset of Modern movement architecture. But beware: tons of concrete coming your way!
