Blog Takeover | 1205 by Paula Gerbase Day 5

I have always been hugely aware of architecture and the built environment around me, and they are aspects of every day life which I am very conscious submerse into my work.

Brutalist architecture has a particular draw for me. My absolute favourite examples of London Brutalism which I interact with or pass by frequently are the Barbican Estate, designed by Chamberlain, Powell and Bon, the Southbank Centre, the Institute of Education, on Bedford Way (near Russell Square and the studio) and Centre Point. There is something very beautiful and uncompromising about framing and letting the raw materials speak for themselves, and it's something I strive to achieve with the collection with each season.
