Brutalist architecture is a controversial movement that began in Great Britain shortly after World War II, generating expressive structures made of raw materials with a rugged, uncompromising image.


For the exhibition at Vitra Design Museum the architecture collective Assemble (winner of the Turner Prize 2015) and the artist Simon Terrill have used archival materials from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to recreate full-size foam replicas of playground designs from architecture’s Brutalist period.
