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."
Hop over and see more nice photos:
