Streaming Video - 2014
Rate this:
In this two-part documentary, Jonathan Meades makes the case for 20th-century concrete Brutalist architecture in homage to a style that he sees a brave, bold and bloody-minded. In the first part, Meades traces its precursors to the once-hated Victorian edifices described as Modern Gothic and before that to the unapologetic baroque visions created by John Vanbrugh, as well as the martial architecture of World War II. Celebrating the emergence of the Brutalist spirit in his provocative and incisive style, Meades praises a moment in architecture he considers sublime and decries its detractors.
