New – The future Has Passed
Following on from the Industrial Revolution in the previous century, Modernism sought to underline the technological and humanist modernization of society. Brave new visions were nurtured; think of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, a new design for living.
Now however that dream has dissipated, Modernist / Brutalist architecture in Britain is under significant threat.
There is a new agenda; Modernism has a new vision, a vision that shuns the grandiose towers, that to my eye still retain certain magnificence.
This work has sought to amplify the architect’s vision through the principles of repetition, symmetry and size – the montage prints are over 2 meter square size.
