Wat je gaat doen

We will walk around London in a small, intimate group (6 people max), visit a great number of sites, learn about concrete and its historic and social significance, and spend time admiring and photographing these at most dramatic angles. Loved by some, loathed by others, the rugged urban fortresses we will be locating are excellent examples of the most influential architectural style of the 60s and the 70's that changed the landscape of our cities forever.. The discourse about the future of brutalist landmarks is as stern and uncompromising as the very buildings it assesses : The ongoing struggle among local authorities, preservation societies, residents associations and royal patronage, can in some cases result in preserved or repurposed landmarks, but also quite often in their demolition and permanent loss. Perceptions about these strangely alluring monolithic structures has varied though the years, and where once brutalist buildings have been symbols of a futuristic outlook and a modern way of living, they have also gradually become symbols of urban decay and near totalitarian oppression. So what does the future hold for these impressive concrete beasts ?

Evan

I am an urban storyteller : a fan of brutalist and mid-century architecture, a knowledgeable WW2 and Victorian era enthusiast, and I like engaging with abandoned spaces and forgotten history. I am the founder of www.explorabilia.co.uk, a travel company that helps people discover the most astonishing, off beat spaces hidden in plain sight around us ! I do chilled out, fun walking tours with like minded people where we can enjoy special locations and exchange views about their history and significance - so don't expect me to give you a history lecture or throw a heavily scripted narrative at you ;-) I've completed "Supporting the Safety of Women | Travelers & Hosts" seminar facilitated by the National Network to End Domestic Violence (May 6th, 2019)

The tour begins at Russel Square Tube station and it ends at the Barbican Estate. We may need to hop on the tube once or twice to span longer distances faster and cover more landmarks.
