Geometry + Geology by Daniel Hewitt
Geometry + Geology is an exploration of the formal and expressive affinities between Brutalist architecture and glaciated rock formations. The particular similarities I want to depict are the sense of sublime scale and monolithic bleakness. The rough, weather-stained face of the shuttered concrete resembles the irregularities found in the erosion-scarred terrain of mountain rock. The darkness of the material in wet and grey weather matches that of the frequently dour conditions of the mountains. The shadowy nooks and crevices inspire trepidation and invite exploration.
