Beautiful Brutalism: Barbican prints by Dorothy

Barbican centre

We're big fans of Dorothy's Lost Destination prints, so it's great to these new prints celebrating the distinctive Brutalist architecture of the Barbican

If you've previously taken a look at the Lost Destination range, you'll know that it's all about celebrating lost and overlooked buildings, from the Wigan Casino to Forton Services. London's Barbican, of course, is still very much standing and the once-controversial design by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon largely loved and celebrated. 

Still, it looks very stylish in this travel poster style format. There are three different designs to pick from – one depicting Frobisher Crescent, the semi-circular building at the heart of the Barbican Centre, another showing the original Brutalist entrance to the Barbican Art Gallery, while the third shows the Barbican’s famous three towers – Cromwell, Shakespeare and Lauderdale – which when completed in the 1970s were the tallest residential blocks in Europe.

The prints look great individually – but would look amazing as a set. 

You can buy them for £35 each.
