Prior to and during the Olympic Games, vehicle access will be restricted in Paris, so orders may take longer than usual to process.

Brutalist Paris is the first thoroughly researched, English language study of Parisian brutalist architecture. It constructs a unique photographic record of over 50 buildings across Paris and brings a new interpretation of brutalism in the French context. The book is the result of many journeys, from the Parisian centre to its outer peripheries, and situates brutalism within the broader social, political and cultural context of Paris. It describes brutalism's successes and failures in Paris, from an architecture of monumental urban form to intricately crafted living spaces; from valued, historic monuments to abandoned ruins
