Custom Prints

Our new Custom Print selection is a celebration of the Barbican's history and Brutalist architecture, featuring a collection of exclusive archival imagery. 

Each print can be ordered in different sizes, with a variety of framing options, and are delivered directly to your door. Please note that our custom prints are bespoke and are made to order, taking 10 working days to produce from the date of your order and are non-refundable. 

The collection features a number of images taken by photographer Peter Bloomfield, who was commissioned by the first Managing Director of the Barbican Centre to photograph the completion of the Barbican, and gifted his entire collection of over 1,400 negatives to the arts centre. The rediscovered archive reveals the ambition and scale of the construction of what The Queen called 'one of the modern wonders of the world'; from trees being craned into the conservatory to the hand-finishing of the structure's famously textured concrete walls.
