Brutalism. You either love it or hate it, right? Not really, no. You can love it and get horrified on occasion - the two things can and will go hand in hand. It’s like the slow-mo train wreck of architecture.
Berlin, summer 1961. A wall goes up during the night, splitting the city in half and separating East Berlin from West Berlin. The citizens who were used to crossing a nominal border are now trapped in their respective sections, unable to leave. It happens to Jutta and Karin Voigt, too: the two sisters, twins, are both western Berliners, but Karin ends up in an eastern hospital right before Operation Rose begins.
Eric Dregni has put together an excellent little book. Armed with an interest in oddities and a camera to snap away at roadside attractions, Dregni states he began researching when he was young.
