This Instagram Account Shares Awe-Inspiring Pics Of Brutalist Buildings Combined With Enormous Cats

If you love architecture, you love history and you also love cats, this post is right up your street! If you don’t, giving it a try won’t hurt either. It’s never late to learn about some pretty cool things on our lovely planet.

Directed by three Master of Architecture students at the University at Buffalo, New York – Emily Battaglia, Madelaine Ong and Michaela Senay – Cats of Brutalism is an inspiring project that shares captivating pictures of brutalist buildings with one or two giant cats around with the aim of “introducing warmth, softness, and whimsy to the often-perceived-as cold, hard, and severe forms of brutalism” (as they introduced on their website).

“As we looked more into the style of brutalism we identified the style to be under-represented. In addressing the challenge this posed, we set out to develop a project that pressed on this style, period, and its association, not only as a means of design and social commentary, but as a way to engage the broader public,” they wrote.
