Summary

Jonathan Meades presents a two-part documentary that celebrates 20th-century Brutalist architecture, which typically takes the form of block-like concrete constructions. In the first edition, he traces its origins in the Martial architecture of the Second World War, the Modern Gothic style - widely despised during the Victorian era - and even further back in the time of John Vanbrugh.
