Developed by Laertis Antonios Ando Vassiliou and Pantelis Kampouropoulos of Open Platform for Architecture (OPA), Casa Brutale is “a poetic homage” to Brutalist architecture, a modernist style that became popular in the 1950s through 1970s. In a conversation with The Huffington Post, Vassiliou said that OPA loves brutalist architecture, but Casa Brutale is different.
“Despite communicating ‘strength, functionality and frank expression of materials,’ it has qualities that are not characteristic of [Brutalist architecture],” said Vassiliou. “We believe that Casa Brutale, in contrast to its simple and cold materials (beton brute, steal etc.), channels the rhythm and beauty of its surrounding nature in a way capable of stimulating the senses and evoking emotion, similar to melody or verse.”
