Brutalist Boston Map


This map was possibly the first thing we ever ordered for the shop. We had to order twenty-five copies, and we all agreed: We’re never going to sell twenty-five of these! We were wrong. It’s the one thing that everyone picks up here. Love it or hate it, Brutalist architecture is part of this city—and there’s nothing Bostonians love more than Boston. We can’t keep this one in stock.

Brutalist Boston Map features more than forty leading examples of Brutalist architecture across the greater Boston area, including Boston City Hall (Kallmann, McKinnell and Knowles), Government Service Center (Paul Rudolph) and Madison Park High School (Marcel Breuer). Masterfully designed concrete structures such as Le Corbusier’s only North American building, the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, are included alongside lesser known, but equally important works like the Charlestown Branch Library (Eduardo Catalano) and the Josiah Quincy School (The Architects Collaborative).
