Event description

Description

A series of talks looking at style. In this second talk, author and historian Barnabas Calder defends Brutalism.

Brutalism is much maligned; its exposed concrete often called ugly or even offensive. But is this fair and can Brutalism in fact be seen as strong, practical and even thrilling? Here Barnabas Calder champions the style.

Style: In Defence of... is a series of talks at the Soane Museum examining the content and context of style. Across six talks, in partnership with Machine Books and Future Cities Project, leading experts defend a style, confronting us with new ideas for contemplation and critique. Each talk lasts 30 minutes, followed by an audience discussion.
