London National Theatre Card
This blank card features London’s National Theatre and is the perfect gift for anyone who loves London, Brutalist and Modernist architecture.
Designed by Denys Lasdun, The style of the National Theatre building was described “an aesthetic of broken forms” at the time of opening. Architectural opinion was split at the time of construction. However, despite the controversy, the theatre has been a Grade II* listed building since 1994. Although the theatre is often cited as an archetype of Brutalist architecture in England, since Lasdun’s death the building has been re-evaluated as having closer links to the work of Le Corbusier, rather than contemporary monumental 1960s buildings such as those of Paul Rudolph. The carefully refined balance between horizontal and vertical elements in Lasdun’s building has been contrasted favourably with the lumpiness of neighbouring buildings such as the Hayward Gallery and Queen Elizabeth Hall.
The design is digitally printed on to 300gsm FSC certified card and comes packaged in a biodegradeable cellophane wallet.
