Where We Go: Hamlet at The Barbican, also featuring Brutalist British Architecture (posted 30th October 2015)
Hamlet, staring the rather famous and fabulous Benedict Cumberbatch comes to an end on Saturday. A few members of the team had the joy of going to watch this highly talked about play. Showing at The Barbican in London, this building is a glorious example of 70’s Brutalist British Architecture.
Brutalism was at its peak from the 1950's to the mid 1970’s with the term originating from the French word for ‘raw’, describing the raw concrete (béton brut) favoured by the movement. This style of architecture was most popular with large scale buildings. Here are a selection of images which show the strength of this architecture at The Barbican:
