One of the three iconic Brutalist blocks of the Barbican Estate in London. The 42-floor residential structure, completed 41 years ago, has aged rather beautifully over time. Its concrete is exposed, but comes with a pick-hammered finish.. The characteristic curved tips of the elongated balconies protect against the elements and provide residents with a sense of security. Elegance and intelligence. make the Barbican residential complex one of the most charismatic Brutalist projects found anywhere in the world. Captured by @play_hunter #qwstionthenorm
Last two days before everything is packed up and back to normal... stop by the Brompton Café while you're squeezing in all the LDF sights in Brompton!

This is our new bright yellow version of Forato, made in occasion of the Brompton Café by Today Bread. Forato explores the material used to make traditional Neapolitan nativity scenes to produce a light-weight object - in this case a stool. The moulded form can be easily cut into shape by using a regular hand saw, making this object lo-fi, strong and easy to manufacture — #mlxlstudio#ldf2017#stool#naples#todaybread @l_d_f_official @brompton_design_district @today_bread

Awesome to see more South African design at the London Design Fair.

The silent concentration of participants at @bookerprinthouse's workshop for @universaldesignstudio complimented the tangible atmosphere created by their remarkable wooden structure. Topped by a delicate installation that drifts gently with the wind, the architectural installation itself is an @l_d_f_official must-see. Check online for what other events they are running before the close of the festival tomorrow. Alex Booker also runs regular woodcut workshops through @airbnb, find the link in his Instagram bio.
