This study would help in defining the main aim of Reyner Banham's essay “The New-brutalism - Ethic or Aesthetic” and to explain what he meant by the subtitle Ethic or Aesthetic. This study would also help in differentiating the building of “Yale Center for British Art” with other Architectures. The rationale behind conducting this research is give a detailed description of brutalism with the help of small case study on the “Yale Center for British Art” building, proving it to as the brutalism building.

It has always been a fact that structures have stood for the prevalent ideologies, notions and philosophies of the times they are constructed in. be it formalism, brutalism, functionalism atc. And the trend continues in our post-modern era as well. (David 1991411)
We must also keep in mind the common structures from out vintage past, as they not only are historical landmarks, but also are reflective of the prevalent philosophies at that time.. Very little is known about the architecture of the 1950 and 1960. Most of the recent discourse on architecture in the digital age is manisfested in the famous works by the Independent Group of London - especially in ...
