Following Saturday’s post on the ubiquitous Trellick Tower, I was introduced to this print by Jo Peel.
Whilst we’re talking urban architecture, have a look at her incredible stop-motion / street art film below!
Like architecture? Like techno?
Interesting review in Fact Magazine of a new release which references Brutalism in its title, artwork and musical concept.
So yes, another album cover, another grainy black and white photo of Brutalist architecture. But this time it’s a bit more thought through.
Compare with Damon Albarn’s fondness for the very same Trellick Tower in his videos, as I discussed in this blog post here.
Just read an article, published in The Quietus a few days ago, about Trellick Tower (below) and its use in Damon Albarn’s music videos.
Do click here for the full article, and keep your eyes peeled for Trellick in the three music videos below.
In its short lifetime, the Tower has been held up as an example of modernism’s beauty and aesthetic abhorrence. It’s been synonymous with crime, rape, drug addiction and murder, and been reborn as a trendy place to live.
You can follow this journey through the 3 videos below. And then, for good measure, watch David Guetta turn Peckham’s Aylesbury Estate (round the corner from The Blue Elephant Theatre) into a jungle gym of high-camp free-running.
