New-to-Me: Crowdsourced Database of Concrete Surface Building (Béton Brut)

New-to-me: a Database of béton brut. If you don’t know what that is – I didn’t either, I had to look it up – it’s a smooth concrete surfacing in architecture. Wikipedia has a brief article (Also check out this article from Homecrux). The article from Architect I’m linking to has several images from an upcoming publication: “Save the concrete monsters: That’s the unofficial rallying cry of SOS Brutalism, a crowdsourced online database that, since its launch in October 2015, has uploaded more than 1,000 exemplars of béton brut. Now the founders of the platform have bolstered the effort with SOS Brutalism: A Global Survey (Park Books, 2018).”
