In the early 1950s, a group of British architects championed an architectural style they identified as “Brutalism,” and introduced the term to the English-speaking world. Brutalism was often defined by the use of raw concrete construction. By the 1980s, Brutalist architecture was no longer popular, but in recent years there has been renewed interest in Brutalism, which emphasizes the visceral qualities of its construction. This “tamed” Brutalism, as applied to the Clyfford Still Museum, is the topic of this lecture.
