A Modern Estate

In the historic Barbican Estate, a flat filled with designs by Bertoia and Breuer

In an effort to revitalize a neighborhood that was wrecked by bombardment during World War II, architecture firm Chamberlin, Powell & Bon designed the Barbican Estate in London during the 1960s and 70s. With its unapologetic use of concrete and its multitude of programs (sixteen residential buildings, a cultural centre, two schools, and a public library) the sprawling complex quickly became a symbol of post-war Brutalist architecture in the capital and beyond. Today, the Barbican Estate and its labyrinthine inner spaces still succeed in drawing both residents and visitors of London towards its focal point, a stunning urban lake framed on all sides by massive concrete pilotis.
