Utopia


The photo series Utopia is a collaboration between studio esinam and London based architecture photographer Rory Gardiner.
It pays tribute to some of London's best examples of brutalist architecture: The Barbican Estate, Royal National Theatre, Hayward Gallery, Trellick Tower and the recently demolished Robin Hood Gardens. The series aims to capture the subtle beauty of Brutalism at its best. The sculptural use of concrete, as structure, surface, detail, and ornament in one. Its tactile qualities. The raw and exposed, but at the same time  careful and detailed. The massive scale of the projects and the human centered ideas that once shaped the architectural style.

A selection of the photos have been printed in a limited edition and are available here.
