SIMON PHIPPS: FINDING BRUTALISM

For almost twenty years British photographer Simon Phipps has been documenting the rebuilding of Britain after the Second World War through the work of architects. 


His archive documents Britain's post-war modernism and new brutalism in architecture and recognises the architects' enormous contribution to the transformation of the political and social landscape of the country in the aftermath of WW II. Significant building on a mass scale was realised and new building techniques were pioneered alongside innovative layouts, resulting in buildings of outstanding quality, displaying radical new forms. The construction ranged from public and private housing, to schools and universities, churches, museums, galleries, commercial and, ultimately, entire new towns.
