Description

Ziggurats of the University of East Anglia, in Norwich, Norfolk, UK, designed by Denys Lasdun. They offer a cinema style view over their surroundings. Brutalist architectural design, but important at the time they were designed. This architectural genre flourished from 1951 to 1975, having descended from the modernist architectural movement of the early 20th century. Considered both an ethic and aesthetic, utilitarian designs are dictated by function over form with raw construction materials and mundane functions left exposed. Reinforced concrete is the most commonly recognised building material of Brutalist architecture, and the ziggurats at UEA are an example of this.
