A celebration of concrete - a Utopian dream?

Trellick Tower, North Kensington, London, UK

 

A "fine" example of Brutalist architecture. In the past, the tower had a very poor reputation for crime and anti-social behaviour.

 

Trivia: (from Wikipedia...)

In the song "Best Days" by Blur, Trellick Tower is referred to in the lyric, 'Trellicks Tower's been calling'. The building is also seen in Blur's video for "For Tomorrow" and the video for "Kingdom of Doom" by Blur lead singer Damon Albarn's 2007 project The Good, the Bad and the Queen.
