To Book a Free Ticket RSVP to eva.sandoval@ribabookshops.com

Author Christopher Beanland will kick off the evening at the RIBA Bookshop by revealing what lies behind the unapologetic grey concrete facades of the Brutalist movement.  He’ll take us through a global journey into the fascinating stories of some of the most iconic, and some of the lesser known “Brutalist Beasts” around the world.  Why were they built? What do they mean? How are they seen today?  These are some of the things we’ll get to find out about this beautifully illustrated catalog of Brutalist architecture around the globe.  This evening will pay homage to the architectural movement that is loved today as much as it has been hated in the past.  The talk will be followed by an audience Q&A session.

The book Concrete Concept: Brutalist Buildings Around the World is published by Frances Lincoln and it can be purchase either in the bookshop or through our website.
