Brutalist Utopia: Barbican Art Print
Brutalist Utopia: 'Barbican' Illustrated art print.
Described by Queen Elizabeth as "one of the modern wonders of the world", the Barbican Estate in London is one of the largest examples of the Brutalist style and represents a utopian ideal for inner-city living.
The post-war complex was designed in the 1950s by British firm Chamberlin, Powell and Bon – a team of three young architects who had recently established their reputation by winning the the 1951 design competition for the nearby Golden Lane Estate.
These days the address is highly sought after, with properties selling for as much as £4 million. I stayed in a very ordinary looking character less estate when I moved to London, but this is Brutal Beauty.
