    First German edition. This seminal work by British architectural critic Reyner Banham explores the modern architectural movement known as New Brutalism. The book is noted for its detailed investigation and seminar-led exploration into the historically significant aspects of Brutalism, and for encouraging a critical stance on the movement among the next generation of architects as it includes a myriad of illustrations and was meticulously translated into German. Banham quotes Peter Smithson, a pioneer of the movement, emphasizing the challenge of translating his work. A significant historical document in architectural theory, it showcases the rigorous debate and intellectual vigor surrounding Brutalism during the mid-20th century.
