Brutalism brings a smile on a gray day

Below is an example of Brutalist architecture. Usually distinguished by board-marked poured concrete, this exterior shows coloured resin-impregnated boards in the blocky form that also defines Brutalism. It's a real standout in this neighbourhood of prosaic late Victorians. The other side features a thirty foot bridge to the front door.

I'll be included in the Best of 2011 TOAE show at FCP Gallery, January 17 to February 25, 100 King West here in Toronto. Check it out!
