I finally got out on Saturday for a walk through and around the West End of London where there are plenty of examples of Brutalism scattered around.
Sadly the light throughout the day was really poor – heavy overcast grey skies…not ideal for photography…but at worse I’ve had a good scouting mission!
I had 12 buildings to see…but actually only managed to get to 9 of them on my list before the light completely failed, although I did stumble upon a couple of buildings that I didn’t know existed but were definitely brutalist.
So, look forward to a few posts over the next few weeks including:
- The Standard Hotel
- The Weston Rise Estate
- The Brunswick Centre
- SOAS & The Institute of Education
- The Imperial Hotel
- CAA House (second visit)
- Covent Garden Travel Lodge
- St Giles Hotel
- The Royal College of Physicians
- Bonus find (1) 115 New Cavendish Street
- Bonus Find (2) Holiday Inn, Regents Park
