Monumental Buildings

In Uncategorized on January 17, 2013 at 11:14 am

This week I saw two places I had longed to see, buildings I’ve known and read about but never managed to visit. First was the Secession House in Vienna with the restored Beethoven Frieze by Gustav Klimt. The building is small but beautiful and the frieze, amazing.

and secondly, on the way to shoot the home of artist Jason Brooks and Lucy Yeomans, I finally caught a glimpse of Erno Goldfinger’s Brutalist Trellick Tower, not as attractive as the Secession House but a landmark none the less.
