The Az W Insta-Photo Award on the occasion of the exhibition “SOS Brutalism – Save the Concrete Monsters!” directed the focus to the rediscovered Brutalist architecture from the 1950s to the 1970s.

Instagramers were invited to share with us new perspectives of these exposed concrete buildings. Almost 500 photos were posted with the hashtag #brutalism_azw.

The jury members Angelika Fitz, Verena Kaspar-Eisert and Sonja Pisarik selected ten photographs, which are presented at the Az W till 6th August.
