revived: the futuristic dream of the Balfron Project

Balfron Tower by Karina Yarv
Amelia's magazine captures the revitalised fascination in brutalist utopian dreams in a feature based around Simon Terrill's show The Balfron Project at London's Nunnery Gallery, with added illustration work of Erno Goldfinger's pre-Trellick Tower capital dream, Balfron Tower, and mentions of the "streets in the sky" of nearby Poplar's (unlisted and so unprotected architecturally) Robin Hood Gardens. Reimagining the present as well as the past, maybe.
