barbican centre: brutalism of the 70ies

so, I am in london now. and this is the largest multi-arts centre in europe. people use to call it london’s ugliest building. but when the queen opened it in 1982 she pronounced it ‘one of the wonders of the modern world’. In the end the barbican is the microcosm of london.
