Ethics or aesthetics? Was the New Brutalism a moral crusade for the reform of architecture, as the British proponents appeared to claim in the early 1050s, or was simply another post-war style. Options differs wherever the New Brutalism is discussed and the fact that is still being discussed some years back after its foundation shows how fundamental a contribution to the architecture of the 50s and 50s was made by this movement, British in origins, world-wide in repercussions. Author has set out to the remedy this situation in a text, which is, at the same time, scholarly history of the documentable facts on the Brutalism, an eye-witness on the account of the period and personalities that produced it, and a comparative critique of numerous buildings regarded rightly or wrongly � as examples of Brutalist architecture.
