Explore this new display on brutalist architecture, for both children and adults. Queen Elizabeth Hall and Hayward Gallery are both notable examples of brutalist buildings, a type of architecture popular in the 1960s, when the buildings were built. 50 years on, this style of architecture continues to excite and divide the public. Working with a group of school children from Ashmore Primary School in Lambeth (which was also built in 1968), we explored this distinctive style of architecture through the eyes of children. This new display offers an insight into the history of brutalism and how our 1960s buildings came to be. It also showcases the creative responses made by the children involved in the project.
