Summary note
"Brutalist Paris is the first thoroughly researched, English language study of Parisian brutalist architecture. It constructs a unique photographic record of over 50 buildings across Paris and brings a new interpretation of brutalism in the French context. The book is the result of many journeys, from the Parisian centre to its outer peripheries, and situates brutalism within the broader social, political and cultural context of Paris, including its appearance in film and television. It describes brutalism’s successes and failures in Paris, from an architecture of monumental urban form to intricately crafted living spaces; from valued, historic monuments to abandoned ruins.The book includes seven essays by Dr Robin Wilson, details for more than 50 individual buildings, maps and more than 150 black and white photographs by Dr Nigel Green."-- Provided by publisher.
