BARBICAN CENTRE
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

This Brutalist complex was voted “ugliest building” in London in 2003, thanks to its exposed concrete façade which so many people consider forlorn. Yet the architectural design of Chamberlin, Powell and Bon has actually been incredibly well thought through. The Barbican contains apartments as well as Europe’s largest cultural centre, comprising a concert hall, theatres, cinemas and galleries. Tiny green courtyards, cafés and pools of water are to be found throughout the complex, all of which are an invitation to relaxation for both visitors and residents alike.
