Brutalist buildings – a new frontier for conservation?

Short, Michael


Michael Short


When we think of historic buildings, we’re pretty comfortable with the idea that old mansions, the grand Georgian terraces, old stately homes or important cathedrals are protected by the state – from demolition and inappropriate extension or change. But what about buildings from the more recent past? As more and more modernist buildings are protected by the state, this article examines the protection of the most controversial element of that recent past; Brutalist buildings.
