Building The Future


I never consciously noticed the brutalist architecture in Berlin, but when seeing these great photos by Finding Berlin it’s like: “Oh wow, true - we have these buildings here, I can remember.” Brutalist architecture is a style of architecture which flourished from the 1950s to the mid 1970s, spawned from the modernist architectural movement. Examples are typically very linear, fortresslike and blockish, often with a predominance of concrete construction. In other words:

"These build­ings looked like space­ships. Not the styl­ish ones from sev­eral sci-fi movies, more like the rough ver­sion as in Battle­ship Galactica. Con­crete space­ships, built for yearn­ing soci­ety that watched the first man walk­ing on the moon and felt the future would be near."
