After World War II, London started to slowly recover from the damage of war. The destruction provides opportunities for an new architecture style - fresh, impressive, and yet affordable. This is when Brutalism took the Call. The new canon of architecture by Team Ten in 1954 revised the relationship between man and building. It divided urban system into houses, streets, districts, and the city. Brutalism was the attempt to induce the four elements into one.
Brutalism is a term applied to a school of modernist architecture which began during the 1950s but whose influence still continues today. Typifying 1970s architecture, it is described as "geometric. massive, monolithic and blocky," It is also typified by the use of poured and moulded concrete in constructions. Brutalist style, often associated with socialist and Soviet architecture, was popularized by the architect Reyner Banham in his writing, which claimed Brutalism "makes the whole conception of the buliding plain and comprehensive."
