Illustrations by Gordon Cullen

I’m afraid I don’t know the provenance of these, they were just sitting in a file on my computer. I always think of Gordon Cullen’s illustrations when I’m confronted by a Brutalist building, you can see what they were trying to achieve but never really seemed to achieve. At least not for an extended period of time.

The images are of the proposed new town of Hook in Hampshire. They’re in an Owen Hatherley book but I can’t remember the title.
