"Brutalism was mocked and misunderstood. But it produced some of the most sublime, awe-inspiring buildings on the planet."—Jonathan Meades, BBC TV

"Brutalist architecture arouses passion and fury in equal measure."—Financial Times

"It is damned by its name which comes from the French, béton brut, or raw concrete, but we use the same word (Brut) to describe Champagne and this perhaps sums up the dichotomy at the heart of this style."—Financial Times

"A 560 page, oversized format book that deserves a place on every design and architecture nerd's coffee table."—Acquire

"If you'e down with concrete, check out Phaidon's latest book, Atlas of Brutalist Architecture. The stunning, 560-page coffee table tome shares more than 850 buildings, some which still exist and others that have been destroyed, that put the style on full display the world over."—Bloomberg
