Brutalist Paris is the first thoroughly researched English-language book about Brutalist architecture in and around Paris. Drawing on over five years of research, interviews and photography conducted by Robin Wilson and Nigel Green of Photolanguage, Brutalist Paris represents a substantial contribution to the study and exploration of Brutalist architecture. It describes Brutalism’s successes and failures in Paris, from an architecture of monumental urban form to intricately crafted living spaces; from valued, historic monuments to abandoned ruins.
The book includes seven essays by Dr Robin Wilson, details for more than 50 individual buildings, maps and more than 150 black and white photographs by Dr Nigel Green.
As featured in Wallpaper, World of Interiors, Design Boom and elsewhere.
