“My interest in Brutalist architecture has been a recent development
I am drawn to their unique symmetry, simplicity and rawness. It’s difficultly at times to understand how they became as they are so distinctly different and repre-sent a true art movement in architecture. The

Most of the buildings seem to possess an exoskeleton and my experiments in line at the time was an appropriate style to use”.
