The first in what may become a series featuring buildings constructed of concrete…
The Royal National Theatre (more generally known as the National Theatre) is a concrete building designed by architects Sir Denys Lasdun and Peter Softley and structural engineers Flint & Neill and contains three stages, which opened individually between 1976 and 1977. It is classified as being an archetype of Brutalist architecture but has been granted Listed Building status obtaining Grade II* .
To me, it seems to be a colourless and bland building, angular, boxy & not overly inspiring. My aim was to find some colour to brighten it up a little.
