Anmelderne:

"Gorgeous new book preaches the gospel of Brutalist architecture."—Wired.com

"[Chadwick] has an eye for the stark abstract purity of the best brutalism (and its silent but essential ally, great black and white photography)." —Wallpaper.com

"A wide and celebratory view of Brutalism, redefining and expanding the term 'Brutal' to include buildings usually considered outside the movement... The book demonstrates the international reach of Brutalism... [and] the ongoing influence of the movement today" —Architects Datafile
