Heroic Concrete: Retrofitting Brutalism
Brutalism, the once-maligned architectural style that reached its apex over half a century ago, is undergoing something of a reappraisal as its most notable structures near the end of their lifespans. This panel, “Heroic Concrete: Retrofitting Brutalism” features Henry Moss of Bruner/Cott & Associates, and Graeme Stewart and Ya’el Santopinto of ERA Architects. The panelists will discuss two separate, ongoing initiatives; Bruner/Cott & Associates’ retrofit of Josep Lluís Sert’s significant body of work in the Boston area; and ERA’s role in the Tower Renewal Partnership, which is upgrading Ontario’s significant collection of concrete tower housing blocks.
