Wrapping this one up to send out tomorrow. Limited Edition Frobisher Crescent, Barbican giclee print.

The estate was designed by Chamberlin Powell and Bon and completed 1982 #barbicanestate #barbicancenter #barbican #londonarchitecture #frobishercrescent #chamberlainpowellbon #brutalistarchitecture #brutalism #architecturelover

Shakespeare Tower and the corner of Frobisher Crescent, Barbican, evening. I like to keep the shutters open in an attempt to see into my neighbour’s flats. All too often, one can see very little apart from strange lights that illuminate the black nightfall. There is comfort in living in a huge city. One is never alone #city #night #light #artistswholookoutoftheirwindows #painting #art #contemporaryart #modernart #barbican #cityoflondon #london #abstractart #femaleartist #nightlights #city #citylife #mixedmedia #architecture #highrise #charcoal #acrylicpainting #londonbylondoners #isolation #comfort #peinture #sketch #frobishercrescent #shakespearetower #brutal_architecture #rawartists #rawart

And it all started in 1983, with Michael Gambon as King Lear... The Barbican Estate, though, is just an added - glorious, fantastically exciting - bonus. Thank you.

To the left is a glimpse of the balconies of Cromwell Tower, bottom left is sweeping Frobisher Court and to the right is Shakespeare Tower. In the centre background is Blake Tower and beyond London spread out before our eyes. Shot taken from CityPoint. The best description of the history of Frobisher Crescent comes from www.barbicanliving.co.uk "Frobisher Crescent was designed as a block of flats, just like the other terrace blocks of the Barbican Estate. For some reason, back in the 70s, the City lost its nerve, and instead of finishing the flats, it turned Frobisher Crescent into an anonymous office building. The City took all the fittings, kitchens and bathrooms intended for the flats and put them in storage. It was the great ‘might have been’ of the Barbican estate. It was meant to be so grand, with its own Sculpture Court no less. (Some developments have gardens, some have fountains, but a sculpture court?) The designers also had ambitious plans for the lower levels, which were also shelved. Below podium level, the architects designed a shopping arcade to follow the curve of the Arts Centre. But there are no shops. It never took off as a shopping precinct and nowadays the lower corridor is mainly used as offices by the Arts Centre. During most of its history, Frobisher Crescent has been occupied by the City of London Business School. For decades, if you stood in the empty sculpture court and looked up, what you saw instead of windows, were rows of louvred wooden shutters. You only needed the distant howl of a wolf to complete the picture of a sad building. But in 2010-11, the top three floors of Frobisher Crescent were converted into attractive flats. The development was carried out by The United House Group and the flats were sold by the City. This is the most exciting new development at the Barbican since … well, since the Barbican."

Finally, a bit of relief as the sun set on the Barbican estate after a boiling day...
