It's hard to imagine cosying up with a piece of Brutalist architecture. But Custhom have been able to transform those distinctively hard lines into their very desirable Hayward textile range.
The straight lines of modernist architecture meets the cosy comfort of a cushion: that's what you get with these new Barbican and Golden Lane-inspired cushions from Things You Can Buy.
The Brutalist architecture of London's Trellick Tower has inspired plenty of artistic interpretations, as well as criticisms, since its completion in 1972. This print by Charlie Warde is a fine contribution to that artistic tradition.
People will always need plates are long time favourites of this site, and now two of our long time favourite designs are available as notebooks.
Published by Anova ahead of the release of their book on 18 August, the notebooks feature either the Barbican or the Trellick Tower design printed on the cover. Each notebook contains 144 pages for your scribbles and own architectural inspirations and are 16.2cm. The books are finished off with an elasticated band.
The notebooks are priced at £6.98, but are currently available on a reduced price (the Barbican is currently the cheaper of the two) on Amazon,
Fans of concrete structures will no doubt love the idea of owning Brutalism – Post-War British Architecture by Alexander Clement, which is published by The Crowood Press later this month.
Brutalism describes architecture that appeared between the years 1945 – 1975, intended to be uncompromisingly modern and striking. But over time, it's a style that has divided the public – some love its bold shape, others see it as nothing more than soulless concrete, steel and glass.
Now we are far enough away from the era, Alexander Clement evaluates the architectural style, its impact and its future over 160 pages, which includes 150 colour photographs of key buildings. Published on 24th January, you can pre-order now for £18.95.
