Recent set of images made at The Barbican.
A work in progress series that aims to feed into an exhibition with artist Steve Smith scheduled for summer 2014.
This is an exploration of urban spaces that are not always looked upon as photogenic but actually, when you stop and look, there is often an aesthetic arrangement of elements to be made.
Enjoy. Ask. Think.
The Barbican Complex in London is an example of brutalist architecture made predominantly from concrete. It comprises of three tall residential towers and a central block which contains flats and other spaces of various purposes. The complex here is now grade II listed as a site of architectural interest. There certainly isn't the feel you would expect from such a cold looking building.
It was created after severe bombing during the second world war and was built between 1965 and 1976 by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon architects.
