Brutalist architecture is a movement in architecture that flourished from the 1950s to the mid-1970s, descending from the modernist architectural movement of the early 20th century. This Brutal Wolrd is a curated collection of some of the most powerful and awe-inspiring Brutalist architecture ever built.

The book is an analysis of this compelling and much-admired style of architecture. It brings to light virtually unknown Brutalist architectural treasures from across the former eastern bloc and other far flung parts of the world. The pages are also a testament to the fact that, perhaps finally, Brutalism can now shed its sense of danger and has come full circle from utopia, to dystopia and back again.

This Brutal World is a wide-ranging global survey featuring buildings in Argentina, Australia and Azerbaijan - Canada, Chile and China - Georgia, Germany and Guatemala - Iceland, India and Israel - Nepal, North Singapore and Sweden - as well as locations right across eastern and western Europe and the United States. It includes works by some of the best contemporary architects like Zaha Hadid and David Chipperfield as well as by some of the master architects of the 20th century including Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Kahn, Paul Rudolph and Marcel Breuer.


Peter Chadwick is a London-based art director and graphic designer. Peter studied design at the Chelsea School of Art, emerging at a time when the worlds of music, fashion and graphic design became inextricably linked, and went on to work at Creation Records (the most successful independent record label of the 90s) where he designed for chart-topping bands including Primal Scream and Spiritualized. After setting up his own studio, Zip Design, in 1996, he masterminded campaigns for major artists such as Groove Armada, Girls Aloud, Fatboy Slim, dance-music brands Cream, Bugged Out and Hed Kandi. Peter is also the author of the popular This Brutal House twitter account (@BrutalHouse) and is a super-fan of Brutalism.
