Leicester University screenprint by Simon Phipps.

twentytwentyone are very pleased to offer two new print editions by Simon Phipps. 

Following the critical success of the preceding series of Brutalist Prints, the new prints continue to focus on post-war British architecture. 

The new prints feature Balfron Tower by Erno Goldfinger and the Engineering Buildingat Leicester University by James Stirling and James Gowan. 

“Simon’s images capture the excitement and dynamism of some of the most daring buildings of the post war period. Part elegy, part celebration these prints record some of my favourite buildings and ones which have been key campaigning cases for the C20 Society. The very deliberate decision to print onto brushed aluminium reflects the architects’ own intense interest in materials and the detailed quality of surface textures.”
Catherine Croft, C20 Society Director

“A great celebration of some of our finest architecture”
Elain Harwood, author and C20 Society Trustee

Each screen print is in an edition of 25. 

50w x 62.5cmh

James Stirling and James Gowan formed a partnership in 1956 having worked together at Lyons, Israel, and Ellis. The Stirling Gowan practice was responsible for some of the most significant projects of the time, most notably the seminal Engineering Building at Leicester University (1959-63). This building was to be Stirling & Gowan’s last building as a partnership. Almost brutalist and anticipating post-modern tropes, it was startlingly original in its incorporation of pre-war modernist typologies, and industrial architectural forms. The building was grade ll* listed in 1993.
