Tour Day: Visit UK brutalist buildings through National Tours
Behind-the-scenes look at icons of UK brutalism.
"From 25 September the trust will celebrate the importance of an architectural style that people usually love or detest: brutalism.
There will be guided tours of some of the best of Britain’s brutalist buildings including the Southbank Centre in London, Park Hill flats in Sheffield and the University of East Anglia campus in Norwich.
Visitors will get to nose around in ventilation rooms and other spaces normally out of bounds to the public.
Shan Maclennan, the deputy artistic director of the Southbank Centre, said the closure of the three buildings was a good opportunity to “pause for a moment to explore their architecture and revisit the radical intentions of their makers which are still modern even in 2015."
