Modernism, which was adopted to create a welfare state after World War II, cannot be said to have been fully implemented in architecture as well as economic change all over the world five years after the war. In this understanding, it is an architectural movement that does not originate from and is not affected by historical styles. Brutalism, also known as "Late Modern", emerged to rebuild cities that were destroyed after the war. Brutalism basically used concrete as a building material. A self-developing approach, which emerged in Europe in the 1950s and later joined in materials such as steel and glass, was exhibited. Brutalism was also accepted in the architectural environment in Turkey. However, it emerged in Europe in the 1950s and started to be seen in Turkey in the 1960s and later. Atatürk Cultural Centre is one of the most important symbols of both the 1950s and the Brutalist movement. Atatürk Cultural Centre, which has always been at the focal point of discussions with its transformations and construction stages, serves as a bridge between urban memory and international style brutalism, both within the framework of the brutalist movement and in line with the wishes of the governments, when evaluated from different perspectives.
