Continuing my Eye on Sutton here’s a rather contentious building on the High Street.
Brutalist architecture emerged during the 1950s and was a reaction to the nostalgic style of the 1930s and 1940s.
Buildings are characterised by utilising materials such as concrete and highlighting the structure as a design approach, rather than being traditionally decorative.
How do you feel about it? Will it stand the test of time? Does it compliment surrounding buildings? Is it a bit dark in there?
