Although the word Brutalism comes from the French word for rough concrete (beton brut), a sense of brutality is also suggested by this style. Brutalist structures are heavy and unrefined with coarsely molded surfaces, usually exposed concrete. Their highly sculptural shapes tend to be crude and blocky, often colliding with one another.
