The Barbican Estate

The sun has been shining and its been glorious here in London so yesterday, during my lunch break, I grabbed my camera and went to explore the Barbican and I was properly blown away, I love the place – it’s so cool.

Built during the 1960s and 1970s, famed for its Brutalist Architecture and is now a Grade II listed building.

Even though you’re in the heart of the City, you can wander around and not see anyone.

Ladies that lunch.

One thought on “The Barbican Estate

  1. ‘famed for its Brutalist Architecture’- I like that. I’d never heard the term before so had to Google it. I just like the idea of someone being asked to describe a new buildings architecture and simply saying ‘It’s brutal’ (although I’m sure that’s not how it happened…I just like the idea).
