High-rise tower blocks, prefab panel housing estates, streets in the sky, new towns; some of the concrete constructions that once shaped the cityscapes of post-war Britain have stood the test of time, while others are long gone.

Brutal Britain by Zupagrafika celebrates the 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 and experimental tower blocks at Cotton Gardens in London, to the demolished Birmingham Central Library.

Opening with a foreword by architectural historian Barnabas Calder, the book includes short chapters with full-page colour illustrations and informative texts on each building, along with 8 press-out paper models featuring all kinds of details originally present on the facades. All models are die-cut and pre-folded with simple assembly instructions attached: all you need is glue.
