The Product: Landmark Modernist buildings in London
A collection of prints of Modernist Buildings in London wouldn’t be complete without featuring Highpoint, the Isokon Building and the Royal Festival Hall; all Grade 1 Listed and undoubtedly among London’s most recognisable. Highpoint I was the first of two apartment blocks built in the 1930s on one of London’s highest points, Highgate. Designed by Berthold Lubetkin and Ove Arup, the building contains 64 flats. Isokon Flats in Belsize Park, Camden, is another housing block containing only 36 flats. Designed by Wells Coates for Molly and Jack Pritchard, the building opened in 1934 and was an experiment in minimalist urban living. The Royal Festival Hall was opened in 1951, the first of a group of buildings that are collectively known as The Southbank Centre.
A signed Giclée, this line-drawn, wall-art print of London’s iconic Modernist buildings is presented on the highest quality, acid-free, lightfast, archival, 300gsm, Minuet Cotton Rag. The heavyweight etching board is velvety smooth with a fine surface texture and is one of the most widely used media, worldwide, for artwork and photography. Using pigment-based UltraChrome and Ultra Violet (UV) inks, the Giclée printing process ensures superior detail, colours and longevity. The print comes unframed and is delivered in a cardboard tube for you to take straight to your local framer.
Need framing advice? We’d suggest a slim, white frame with subtly visible woodgrain and a white card mount, if you wish the frame to disappear – say, against a white wall – and the print to stand out. Equally as effective is the same style of frame in black – as here – also teamed with a white card mount, to outline the drawing and act like bold, precise punctuation! The third option would be to go for a softer, warmer effect with a natural or stained wooden mount. All three will work beautifully, depending on the backdrop, and the look you want to achieve. It’s worth knowing that artworks such as these will often leap out, to striking effect, from a dark-hued wall.
