Brutalism – An Abomination of Architecture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tonight I saw a most vile thing

An abomination,

The brutality of it is immense,

Cruelty and greed are the high points of its character.

Leading lines of hellish opulence

A blatant disregard for nature

Monolithic blocks of concrete

Impersonal and separating,

Insulting the dominion of peace.

Destruction of freedom,

And the creation of property.

An architectural metaphor for murder!

The elegance of a thousand years,

Slapped back into modernity.

The theft of ethereal infinity

Hacked by a saber of rebar, concrete, and steel

Brutalist pathways,

The stamp of totalitarianism.

 

*Note: The poem is written for metaphorical value for the type of political mindset which produces the shameful structures that are in place. There are plenty of examples of wonderful and futuristic brutalism inspired architecture which is natural and free-flowing.

**DON’T FUEL THE FIRE! TURN OFF THE TV AND FORGET THE MEDIA! THE TRUTH IS NEAR!
