Trellick Tower Art Print Poster

$47

At Wolf & Badger

A Trellick Sunset. Goldfinger's design is based on his earlier and slightly smaller Balfron Tower (in Poplar, east London), and is in effect a sibling building. The tower was completed at a time when high-rise tower blocks were going out of fashion as local authorities were beginning to realise the social problems they caused. It was said to have inspired JG Ballard's novel, High Rise, in which residents collapse into anarchy and wage war on each other's floors. A destiny of desolation and demolition seemed inevitable. Although Wendy who runs a bookshop in the city, and a resident of the Barbican insists that the novel is more reflective of life in the Barbican Estate! Something unexpected, something astonishing, has happened. Trellick has clawed out of the abyss. Against all the odds, it has hewn a renaissance from the concrete. Crime and disorder have virtually evaporated. Lifts glide, boilers hum, management works. Tenants adore it, Blur sing about it, directors and advertisers film it, T-shirt designers transpose it, architects study it, coach-loads of tourists photograph it. Trellick's transformation is the closest urban renewal gets to fairytale - one which planners hope will become a model for Britain. It is a story of a flawed ideal, a vilified architect, a doomed vision and tenants who refused to give up. Above all, it's a story of the fickleness of fashion. Sold unframed.

Le Corbusier'S Unité D'Habitation Art Print Poster

$47

At Wolf & Badger

Le Corbusier's Unité d'Habitation is arguably the most influential Brutalist building of all time. With its human proportions, chunky pilotis and interior "streets", it redefined high-density housing by reimagining a city inside an 18-storey slab block. Completed in 1952, Le Corbusier's Unité d'Habitation in Marseille has been blamed for launching a thousand brutalist concrete apartment blocks around the world. (including the mammoth Kanchenjunga tower in Bombay) The Unite d' Habitation was the first of a new housing project series for Le Corbusier that focused on communal living for all the inhabitants to shop, play, live, and come together in a "vertical garden city." Le Corbusier believed the tower block was the solution for rehousing the masses that had been displaced during the second world war, and that high rise building could be used to create spacious city homes with the same amenities as a typical street. Unlike a typical apartment block, this arrangement meant that these access corridors - known as "streets" - only needed be accommodated on every third floor. There are just five in total.

The Hoover Building Art Print Poster

$47

At Wolf & Badger

The bright aquamarine windows in the backdrop of white, the glazed ceramics on the main entrance facade, the patterned black grills on the door, are some of the reasons why I just absolutely love this building and Art Deco architecture! Described as, "a sort of Art Deco Wentworth Woodhouse - with whizzing window curves derived from Erich Mendelsohn's work in Germany, and splashes of primary colour from the Aztec and Mayan fashions at the 1925 Paris Exhibition." In 1931 Ohio- based vacuum cleaner makers the Hoover Company commissioned Wallis, Gilbert and Partners to create a factory on the Western Avenue in Perivale. The Art Deco building was constructed using "Snowcreate" which is a white concrete that always will stay looking like new even after the harshest of British weathers and is decorated with bright coloured faience (glazed ceramic inspired by ancient Egypt). At night the building is illuminated with fluorescent green light - which makes the building visible to airlne passenger arrivals to nearby Heathrow airport. * Print sold unframed Printed on premium 350gsm lightly textured thick Matte Paper.
