Það sem verður gert

We will walk around London in a small, intimate group (6 people max), visit a great number of sites, learn about concrete and its historic and social significance, and spend time admiring and photographing these at most dramatic angles. Loved by some, loathed by others, the rugged urban fortresses we will be locating are excellent examples of the most influential architectural style of the 60s and the 70's that changed the landscape of our cities forever.. The discourse about the future of brutalist landmarks is as stern and uncompromising as the very buildings it assesses : The ongoing struggle among local authorities, preservation societies, residents associations and royal patronage, can in some cases result in preserved or repurposed landmarks, but also quite often in their demolition and permanent loss. Perceptions about these strangely alluring monolithic structures has varied though the years, and where once brutalist buildings have been symbols of a futuristic outlook and a modern way of living, they have also gradually become symbols of urban decay and near totalitarian oppression. So what does the future hold for these impressive concrete beasts ? ** If the scheduled dates/times don't work for your party, do contact me and I'll be happy to organise a tailored walk for you !
