Guide to brutalism — Editorial design
In 2016, the Copenhagen culture festival, Golden Days, celebrated their annual festival and had chosen the “1970’s” as their main theme. The festival focused on the decade’s culture, spiritual life and world view, as well as the more maligned and hated flows and ideas that emerged at this time, especially in architecture. 40 years ago, the architecture experimented with visions and dreams expressed in raw concrete and this resulted in a brutalist movement, that for many architects today represent an era they’d rather see buried. The book is written as a guidebook of the brutalist days in Copenhagen and invite you to see 11 cases/buildings that are mapped in the dust jacket. The photos were captured in black and white to underline the character of the raw concrete, and the layout and typography make use of a mechanical and template format that enhances the effective and rational mindset used in the architecture of the time: Brutal and unromantic.
