I live near caves anon. It is a pain.

This building though is in the Philippines. I've grown up with it, and passed by it nearly everyday. This was a serious, no nonsense business building, owned by a company that supplied automatic typing machines; I find it funny that capitalism has rendered it a into it's current iteration - a fast food joint (foot traffic, I presume) ... lmao.

What finally got me to appreciate brutalism was understanding it in its cultural and historic context. The POINT of most brutalist architecture was large public buildings in the post-war reconstruction decade(s). Strapped for money and resources, architects were limited in the sorts of materials and construction methods they could use.
Also, designers and pollies/planners wanted specifically to AVOID the more intricate styling and characteristic design features of 19th century Euro architecture because of its association with the excess and imperialism that stoked the fires of both world wars. Socialism and labour movements were huge and important political forces in the 50s and 60s, particularly in Britain and France where much of the classic examples of brutalist design got made. Brutalism was part of a general shift in societal attitudes - its intersection with modernism and the desire to build a new world out of the ashes is important to consider.
Finally, related to that last point, most brutalist buildings were public buildings (often social housing) and the desired role of public buildings was changing along with the state as a whole. Part of the postwar reconstruction and new socialist/labour ethos was that the government ought to provide much more in the way of services, so most new public buildings at the time were HUGE. Architecture at this scale was fundamentally limited in the sorts of materials and construction methods they could use, hence, lots of monolithic concrete.

Thank u for coming to my ted talk.

Still going because I'm bored today.

Admittedly, it's very easy for brutalism to be BAD. e.g. >>4219063
>>4217606
>>4216332
>>4213461

But, when done well, intergrated into the surrounding cityscape, provides outdoor spaces and greenery to balance the weight of concrete, uses light effectively (way more important than you'd think) and designed in the intended style/cultural modernist context of the time, you can get really cool examples e.g. >>4213450
>>4213445

Let's not forget: "form follows function". This is the architecture of the rational man: Homo sapiens veris. Brutalism is flat rejection of the centuries of man-made nonsense holding back the society.

Define 'nonsense' and elaborate on how it is/was holding society back.

1. Ornament, superstition, politics.
2. Like Prince William chastising the new man Elon Musk for financing moonshots instead of his Earthshot – fifty years after the last Apollo mission.
3. Like the mores and prejudice determining man's fate regardless of his individual ability and virtues.

>>4227987
4. Like the medieval Europe burying achievements of the classical Europe under the sediment of time. This is a paradoxical example of a tradition itself being counter-traditional.

>>4227987
5. Like any impotent structure cockblocking a virile force.

>inb4 define impotent
Incapable of procreation.

The impotent needs not be old, nor the virile – be young. Sometimes the old can come in a young packaging, as is the case with /pol/. At other times, degenerate young (zoomers) are the impotent security seekers while the old one (me) is the virile one.

Brutalism doesn't reject superstition and politics. Nor does it in any way oppose classism. You'd be hard-pressed to find an architectural style more political than brutalism.

When it doesn't reject those, it ceases being purely functional. Then it ceases being "brutalism".

Something I can't stand about Brutalism are those stupid flat/wide stairs that a lot of Brutalist buildings have. Stairs are built to a certain standard grade for a reason, it's the most ergonomically efficient/pleasing shape to accommodate the average human stride. My university had stairs like this all over campus and it was a massive pain in the ass to get anywhere.
