Brutalist Paris has been reviewed in London Review of Books, Times Library Supplement, ArchDailyDezeenWallpaper, World of Interiors, Design Boom, and the New York Times. It was featured in the World Architecture Community top 10 architecture books of 2023.

“It is strange given the enormous wealth of extremely high modernist architecture in and (mainly) around Paris that there isn’t a book in English on the subject already… This one steps into the breach nicely and obliquely – it has a very useful gazetteer of buildings and housing estates and excellent photographs, but avoids both sociology and ‘fuck yeah concrete’ fetishism, preferring serious analysis of what Parisian Brutalism actually is in terms of structure, materials and urban form.” – Owen Hatherley
