Brutalist London: The Balfron Tower Art Print
Brutalist London: 'Balfron Tower' Illustrated Art Print.
This 27-storey slab block was a testbed for Ernö Goldfinger's utopian housing ideals. The most striking characteristic of the building is the composition of volumes that makes up its distinctive profile.
Reinforced concrete gives the building its rigid structural grid, which visibly frames each residence. In a letter published in the Guardian at the time he explained: "The whole object of building high is to free the ground for children and grown-ups to enjoy Mother Earth and not to cover every inch with brick.
