More Barbican

The Barbican is a weird place. Built as a residential estate in the 60’s and 70’s to fill what had been devastated during the Blitz of the WW2, it’s a celebration of a time of terrible architecture that is somehow just lovely. The technical term for it is “Brutalist Architecture”, and by golly, that’s spot-on…

Above is really a halfway between a tenement and towerblock and it has a certain charm. It’s named after Lancelot Andrewes a 16th-century English bishop and scholar.
