‘Brutal London’ is a collection of paper cutout models which recreates the (thankfully short-lived) brutalist architecture trend that made up London’s urbanscape during the 1960s to the 1970s. Created by Zupagrafika, a Polish graphic design & creative firm, the collection consists of five highly-detailed paper templates with true to life illustrations of the original buildings’ facades.

The `raw concrete` London tour begins with iconic tower blocks (Balfron Tower and Space House), leads through the infamous estates doomed to premature demolition (Robin Hood Gardens and Aylesbury Estate) and concludes with a classic prefab panel block (Ledbury Estate).

You can buy the entire set at Zupagrafika’s online store. Visit the firm’s site and Behance to see more of their works.
