The first photographic exploration of the post-war modernist architecture of Greater London, from Barking and Brent to Sutton and Waltham Forest.

Simon Phipps' photographs of the modernist architecture of Greater London explores the form and beauty of these post-war buildings. Following on from his iconic first book Brutal London, this sequel expands his survey beyond London's inner zones through to the outer perimeters of London, encircled by the M25.

From Croydon to Thamesmead, Wood Green to Willesden, the modernist ambition, scale and structure of these buildings are starkly rendered in his acclaimed photographs. He offers us a chance to look at these everyday buildings in residential, retail and leisure hubs again and appreciate the civic optimism and bold architecture of the 1960s and 70s.

Brutal Outer London is a design-led hardback. With maps and detailed listings of all architecture photographed, it enables readers to explore Brutalism on foot, train or bus across Outer London.
