Brutalism

York County National Bank Building • Order A Print

Weight and mass characterize Brutalism, a popular style in the mid-Twentieth Century. The style was named for the "brutal" effect of the buildings—exposed concrete, no skin, rough surface, and/or visible structure. The former York County National Bank Building on East Market Street was originally constructed in the Romanesque Revival Style, but "Brutalized" in subsequent years.
