The Rise of the Barbican Complex

As early as the mid-1950s to the end of that era submissions were put forward for designs as to what then became the Barbican. Plans grew to include an exhibition hall, residential flats, art gallery public lending library, restaurant, concert hall. Works started in 1963, and some was already taking form and shape by the mid-1970s. The Barbican complex also houses The Guildhall School of Music and Drama, carparks, lobbies, cinemas, catering outlets. Queen Elizabeth our current Queen opened the centre in 1982. Her Majesty declared it as “One of the modern wonders of the world”.
