béton brut

Brutalist architecture and the movement of Brutalism is an architectural style which flourished from the 1950’s through the 1970’s. The word is derived from the French word 'Béton brut’ which translates to ‘raw concrete’ and references the exposed concrete construction as the main component to Brutalist architecture.
