Brutalism goes with Bucharest
(Housing proposition on Th. Pallady Boulevard, Bucharest)
What if Brutalism were used as a means to rememorate the Socialist utopia, in the context of its real outcome (the sinister socialist housing blocks which suffocate Bucharest)?
“Brutalism is criticised as disregarding the social, historic, and architectural environment of its surroundings, making the introduction of such structures in existing developed areas appear starkly out of place and alien.” When dealing with such an environment (post-Communist Bucharest), a Postmodern ironic approach on Brutalism might work just fine.
