Description

BRUTAL BRITAIN: Build Your Own Brutalist Great Britain celebrates the concrete constructions of post-war Britain.

High-rise tower blocks, prefab panel housing estates, streets in the sky: those concrete constructions once shaped the cityscapes of post-war Britain. Some have stood the test of time, others are long gone.

This latest book by Zupagrafika (also the author of Brutal London, Prestel, 2016) celebrates Brutalist architecture of the British Isles, inviting readers to explore the Modern past of Great Britain and rebuild some of its most intriguing post-war edifices, from the iconic slabs of Sheffield’s Park Hill through to the experimental tower blocks at Cotton Gardens in London, and the now-demolished Birmingham Central Library.

Brutal Britain features a foreword by architecture historian Barnabas Calder, informative chapters on the history of the buildings and their architects with striking full-page colour illustrations, along with 8 press-out paper models, recreating in detail the original façades. All models are die-cut and pre-folded with simple assembly instructions; the only tool required is glue.

Contains 8 press-out paper models celebrating British post-war architecture:

  • Arlington House. Margate
  • Birmingham Central Library. Birmingham
  • Cables Wynd House. Edinburgh
  • Cotton Gardens Estate. London
  • Hutchesontown C. Glasgow
  • No. 1 Croydon. Croydon
  • Park Hill. Sheffield
  • The Toast Rack. Manchester
