Brutalism: Post-War British Architecture by Alexander Clement

By Alexander Clement

The time period Brutalism is used to explain a kind of structure that seemed, regularly in Europe, from round 1945–1975. Uncompromisingly glossy, this development in structure used to be either amazing and arresting and, probably like no different type ahead of or considering that, aroused extremes of emotion and debate. a few appeared Brutalist structures as mammoth soulless buildings of concrete, metal, and glass, while others observed the style as a logical development, having its personal grace and balance.

Temperature is still increasing. July usually has the hottest average monthly temperature of a year. 6. From August to November, the Sun gets progressively weaker at this city. The point of maximum insolation is moving southward and will enter the Southern Hemisphere after the September equinox. The duration of daylight is decreasing, and the insolation 28 PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY angle also is dropping. Daily energy inputs are dropping below radiation losses, and it is getting progressively cooler. Why is January usually the coldest month of the year in mid- and highlatitude places in the Northern Hemisphere?

3. The air can’t hold as much water vapor as is already present, so some will be forced to condense back into liquid water. 4. Clouds of liquid water will form in the atmosphere. Once the air is saturated, any decrease in air temperature will force water to condense back into a liquid. If the air still keeps getting colder, then more vapor must revert to liquid. As gaseous water vapor condenses out into liquid water clouds, that can result in rain. How do clouds of liquid water form in the atmosphere?

4. At the time of the June solstice, the Sun is overhead at the tropic of Cancer (its farthest point north), and the hours of daylight are at their maximum. There is a tremendous amount of insolation, because of the long days and the high Sun angle. The heating from the Sun greatly exceeds the amount of heat lost to radiation, so temperatures are increasing. 5. In July, insolation is still very high, but it’s a bit weaker than it was at the solstice. Solar inputs are greater than radiation losses, so the Insolation and Temperature 27 Yearly Insolation and Temperature Changes for a Midlatitude City in the Northern Hemisphere Month December Sun Overhead Tropic of Capricorn Insolation Least Temperature Cold Explanation Sun is overhead deep in the Southern Hemisphere so there are a few hours of weak sunlight.
