A commanding architectural style, evident in the 1950s through to the early 1970s. Brutalism is identified by a valiant use of concrete, often impressed by formwork or textured by exposed aggregate, and typified by a distinctly linear character, with deeply set, restricted glazing and a weighty or "block-ish" feel.
