The Brutalist Playground

Vitra Design Museum

14 Jan 201716 Apr 2017

Brutalist architecture is a controversial movement that originated in Britain shortly after World War II, bringing rise to expressive structures made of raw, massive materials with an uncompromisingly rugged aesthetic. Archival materials of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) have been used to recreate “Brutalist playgrounds” – hybrid architectural installations and walk-through sculptures.
