Heroic Boston Architecture

I did not use Brutalist in the title because if I did 99% of you would not check this out. This is a great article of a group who has been documenting 1960's era concrete design in other cities and have decided to focus on Boston for their next book.

The Q & A does a very nice job of talking about why this kind of architecture was (is) important and why it should be seen as valuable.

Check it out HERE.

Re: Heroic Boston Architecture

cca, that article is from 2015. That book has since been published; you can find it on Amazon for about $40. Highly recommend it.

As I recall it was quite celebrated last year around town when it came out.
