C20 Society launches Brutalist map of London

  • Comment

The Twentieth Century Society has revealed a new map showing London’s Brutalist landmarks

The map produced in conjunction with city guide publisher Blue Crow Media, features more than 50 of London’s Brutalist buildings.

Buildings featured include the Southbank Centre, the Barbican, and Erno Goldfinger’s Trellick Tower.

Basil Spence’s Hyde Park Barracks and the Smithson’s Robin Hood Gardens – both of which were turned down for listing despite campaigns by the Twentieth Century Society – also feature in the guide.

The map gives details of each scheme’s location, date, architect, and listing status.  

Henrietta Billings, senior conservation adviser at the Twentieth Century Society said: ‘This map is a fantastic opportunity to highlight some of London’s boldest and exciting post war buildings. Ten years ago this style of architecture was completely out of fashion, but now more and more people can see what’s great about these buildings.

‘The map will help you find more examples than you ever knew existed.’

Available at Foyles, the RIBA Bookshop and online, this is the first map the Twentieth Century Society has produced. Next year they are set to release another focused on London’s Art Deco buildings.
