Unité d’Habitation

The Unité is generally considered the most important role model for the young brutalists. The term béton brut comes from Corbusier’s description of the building. Especially striking and innovative: the use of sculptural exposed concrete that had been in coarse shuttering. Buildings with smoothed exposde concrete have existed for decades, but the deliberately coarse use was new.
