RESIDENTS: INSIDE THE ICONIC BARBICAN ESTATE

be

The Barbican is one of the most remarkable housing estates in the world. Designed during the 1960s and the 1970s in the city of London by British firm Chamberlin, Powell & Bon, and commissioned by the local authority, it is a unique chapter in the story of state-led architecture. Anton Rodriguez is a professional photographer and Barbican resident who has combined his passion for both in a photographic publication. Featuring more than 22 Barbican residents and residences, Anton’s work shines a light on the incredible interiors and creative people who live in the iconic Brutalist estate. The book also features an essay by design writer Katie Treggiden, looking at the history of the site and exploring why there is such an interest in seeing ‘behind the scenes’.
