OVERVIEW
With stunning images, expert commentary from world-famous architects, and interviews with residents, The Barbican Estate pays tribute to one of London’s most iconic structures on its 50th birthday.
 
This beautifully illustrated and comprehensive book celebrates London’s Barbican Estate as it nears its 50th anniversary in 2019. Author and designer Stefi Orazi examines both the function of this landmark and its status as a world-famous Brutalist icon, interviewing residents past and present to provide insight into how life there has changed over the decades. Leading architects and design critics weigh in, including John Allen of Avanti Architects on the unique building materials, Lucy Musgrave of Publica on how the residential spaces combine with public space, and Charles Holland of Charles Holland Architects (and FAT co-founder) on the Barbican as a home. For each of the 100 different flat types, there are drawings, maps, and details of the fixtures and fittings.
