Exhibit - Brutalism at Guelph: Concrete in a New Light

Bold, raw and unapologetic, Brutalism is an attitude as much as a style.   The concrete builders of the 1960s believed unequivocally that modern problems could be solved with modern design. This exhibition sheds new light on Brutalism by examining its impact on the University of Guelph. The term “Brutalism” came into use in the 1950s to describe the concrete architecture emerging in the United Kingdom and Europe, including Swiss-French architect LeCorbusier’s expressive béton brut—literally meaning “raw concrete.”
