Brutal Wales in The Guardian

The new title in Simon Phipps’ bestselling brutalist series, Brutal Wales / Cymru Friwtalaidd, has been featured in the Guardian.

Brutal Wales is a photographic exploration of post-war architecture in Wales and features over 60 extraordinary buildings.

From the new town of Cwmbran, the immense Trostre Steelworks and the iconic George Street Bridge of Newport to smaller municipal projects such as Theatr Ardudwy in Harlech and libraries and schools across the land, this is an inspiring look at an era of architectural ambition and change. Where preserved, or sometimes simply forgotten, these buildings clearly belong within the rugged landscapes and industrial townscapes as bold testaments of Welsh creativity and post-war renewal.

The book is published in both English and Welsh with an introductory essay by John Grindrod.
