BRUTALIST BEAUTIES 2 EDITION

A FRESH TAKE ON BRUTALIST ICONS IN SMALL-RUN CARDS AND PRINTS

For this edition I took a look at iconic brutes from a fresh angle. What caught my eyes was nuance and personality: the folds on the wall of Masonry Hall form a filigrane, concrete origami, or, turned upside down, unfold into a rocket. Autosilo Balestra car park is a saw-toothed ode to the car age. Its London cousin, Welbeck, is currently being demolished. Luckily, there’s the postcard left to send a souvenir. And then, there’s La Tulipe in Geneva. Here’s a 70’s brute who’s not afraid to show off his soft-pastels side.

BRUTALIST BEAUTIES EDITION 2

The six-piece set presents four béton brut icons from Geneva, Basle, Lugano and London. Printed on super strong and sturdy paper, the cards come with an exceptionally, sumptuous, soft-touch finish. This small-run edition appeals as a collector’s item and gift for all lovers of brutalist beauties. The card set will be complemented by a selection of signed & numbered art prints, to be released in early November.
