It was designed by architects Hermann Fehling and Daniel Gogel, who together made a considerable contribution to German postwar architecture.

BRUTAL III

After much consideration I have finally been able to put together another zine in my BRUTAL series. And this time it’s a little different. Arriving in Berlin I was fascinated by the Mäusebunker. I had to make a trip to the building and see it for myself, at least before any threatened demolition took place.Continue reading “BRUTAL III”

BRUTAL Berlin

Architecturally I had high hopes for Berlin. I knew about the redevelopment of the city after the war then again after after reunification, but I wasn’t prepared for the scale of the development I would encounter.

Over the years I have shot the building numerous times,Continue reading “Chichester Festival Theatre”

The Contributors of BRUTAL Bristol

I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the contributors of BRUTAL Bristol by sharing their work and how to find out more about them. Without their interest and support in this project it would have never left the idea stage. I hope that if you either already have a copy of the zine orContinue reading “The Contributors of BRUTAL Bristol”

Introducing BRUTAL Bristol

Through a chance visit during an extremely unusual year I was in Bristol. A city I had visited a few times before but one I had never really explored.
