Golden Lane Estate

Under the shade of the more famous Barbican Estate in London lies The Golden Lane Estate, yet another example of the modernist urban planning vision and architecture.

The Golden Lane Estate was designed by architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon and completed in 1964.

The estate is composed of a series of tall, slab-like blocks arranged around a central courtyard. The blocks are connected by walkways and bridges, creating a sense of community and a feeling of being above the city. The buildings have large windows that allow for plenty of natural light, and the flat roofs were designed to be used as communal terraces.

The bright and sunny day helped me taking sharp shots of the colourful environment.

It was great discovering such an (almost) hidden gem overshadowed by such an iconic estate as the Barbican.
