About this project

Atro-City explores the revival of Brutalist architecture. The collection, which is designed around the serving of tea, incorporates classic Brutalist aesthetics like heavy forms and asymmetrical proportions along with design philosophies embodied in the architecture including Form Follows Function and Truth to Materials.  Instead of using typical aesthetics associated with concrete, the collection aims to show the shift in opinion surrounding Brutalism, portraying it in a fresh and modern light.
