Trinity Square Car Park

Trinity Square Carpark screenprint by Simon Phipps.

Trinity Square Car Park, Gateshead, 1962-1967. Architect: Rodney Gordon for the Owen Luder Partnership

The term Brutalism was derived from the French ‘béton brut’, or raw concrete and the expression became associated with a movement emerging in postwar British architectural offices.

The photography by Simon Phipps provides a unique perspective and portrays Brutalist architecture in a sensitive, realistic and distinctive manner. 

The prints are each an edition of 25.

To raise awareness and draw attention to the potential plight faced by Brutalist architecture Simon Phipps and twentytwentyone will donate 5% from the sale of each print to the Twentieth Century Society.

“Simon’s images capture the excitement and dynamism of some of the most daring buildings of the post-war period. Part elegy, part celebration these prints record some of my favourite buildings and ones which have been key campaigning cases for the C20 Society. The very deliberate decision to print onto brushed aluminium reflects the architects’ own intense interest in materials and the detailed quality of surface textures.”
Catherine Croft, C20 Society Director
