Brutal North: Post-War Modernist Architecture in the North of England [9781912836154]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
During the post-war years the North of England saw the building of some of the most aspirational, enlightened and successful modernist architecture in the world. For the first time, a single photographic book captures those buildings, in all their power and progressive ambition. Over the last few years acclaimed photographer Simon Phipps has travelled and sought out the publicly commissioned architecture of the post-war North. From Newcastle's Byker Wall Estate, voted the best neighbourhood in the UK, to the extraordinary Park Hill Estate in Sheffield, from Preston's sweeping bus station and Liverpool's Royal Insurance Building, these structures have seen off threats to their survival and are rightly celebrated for the imprint they leave upon the skyline and the cultural life of their cities.This inspiring invitation to explore northern modernism includes maps and detailed information about all the architecture photographed.
AUTHOR: Simon Phipps is a photographer and sculptor. He is the creator of the New Brutalism collection on Tumblr and Instagram. He graduated from the Royal College of Art and grew up in Milton Keynes where his parents were architects involved in the design of the city. This is his fourth book after Brutal London, Finding Brutalism and Concrete Poetry. @new_brutalism www.simonphipps.co.uk
