In association with a small exhibition in London, Elain Harwood and the folks at English Heritage have produced a series of short videos on listed Brutalist buildings. The first — an overview that features Alison & Peter Smithson’s house for Derek Sugden, and Ernö Goldfinger’s Balfron Tower — is embedded here. The other two videos feature Denys Lasdun’s Royal College of Physicians and Peter Aldington’s Turn End houses, respectively. The results are delightful and well worth your 15 minutes.

The result is pressed up on this one-sided 12”, a deadly reduction that pitches the original down into the abyss,… Andy Stott will be back in 2014 with new material.
