A3 Art Print Panoramic view of the Barbican Centre from Britannic House
Panoramic view of the Barbican Centre, the City and St Pauls' Cathedral from Britannic House (February 1982). Art print reproduction of a photograph by Peter Bloomfield from the Barbican Archives.
Photographer Peter Bloomfield was commissioned by Henry Wrong - the first Managing Director of the Barbican Centre - to photograph the final stages of the arts centre. This collection of photographs has, as far as we know, never been widely shared with the public. Peter kindly gifted the c. 1400 negatives he produced to the Barbican.
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.
