Concrete Concept takes architecture admirers on a tour of the world's most impressive, celebrated and controversial Brutalist buildings.

Featuring 50 existing international examples (built between the 1950s to 1970s), it skips from one country to the next to illustrate why concrete buildings grew to become both the most hotly contested and fashionable architectural style in history. Building descriptions cover key details about the building as well as a context for its original use, public reception and current status.
