Brutalism For Non-Architects

Brutalist architecture is a movement that flourished from the 1950s to the mid-1970s, descending from the modernist architectural movement of the early 20th century. The style is experiencing a recent resurgence.

I came across these two projects that allow anyone to get hands on with Brutalism:

The Brutalist Colouring Book by Belgium graphic designer Marc Thomasset is thought to be the first colouring book completely dedicated to the poetry of concrete architecture. (Not for fans of bright colours)

Brutal London: Construct Your Own Concrete Capital tells the stories of nine of London's greatest brutalist structures and includes pull-out papercraft models to assemble and display.
