My Flat was designed by James Sterling in 1958 and which married concrete and brick. I think it was called Brutalism and it was his first design contract after Uni.
And yet I’m still waiting for invitation
Seriously, you live in an architecturally (very) important building / scheme. I’d love to have a look at some point.
We will have to arrange something after I redo the kitchen. Ok?
you might want to re-phase that Dave
Now that’s a proper invite.
I bet it’s wipe clean walls too.
I believe it’s only quite recently that in-depth analysis of Roman cement has revealed its exact composition, and most especially why it is more durable than modern cements and actually becomes harder when in contact with seawater…
only probably Britain’s most famous Architect. meh, nothing to shout about…
His buildings at Leicester Uni are immense (red brick series), few years back we (my practice) built a medical school there and I was intimidated to say the least.
Mind you the builder of our apartments run out of money and could not finish them. Now of course they are Grade II.
without sounding like a weirdo, would be good to have a look at some point. At your place I mean. Just expect some strange architect-rubbing-concrete shenanigans, similar to Vic Reeves rubbing his thighs.
That’s a listed building?
Erm…, Lutyens, Pugin, Rennie Mackintosh, Foster…? And what was the other fella? Named after a bird or summat?
Oh yes, Wren.
Can’t believe I’ve managed to start an arch based debate here, brilliant. Should have probably pre-empted that with the modern era, Rogers and Foster would have a hard time besting in many people’s opinion.
