A digital photoseries in which German photographer Clemens Gritl extrapolates the scale and repeated patterns of 20th century brutalist forms, capturing his exaggeratedly monumental towers in the classic black and white style of 1960s architectural photography.
Examples of Brutalist architecture from the 50s to the mid 70s.
Despite their apparent Soviet Bloc cachet, most were built in the West.
