2013

AGI Open London

26—27.09.13

The Barbican

The Barbican is the UK’s only fully integrated arts centre. It presents a full year-round programme of art, music, theatre, dance, film and creative learning events. As the Guardian noted: ‘The Barbican is now at the leading edge of the performing arts in London.’

Designed in the Brutalist style, the Barbican has always been controversial. It was voted ‘London’s ugliest building’ in a poll in 2003, but amongst design aficionados it is regarded as one of the UK’s architectural treasures.

The Barbican is located in the heart of the City of London. With its cafes, lake and neighbouring terrace, and with its high-grade theatre and gallery spaces, it is a bold and inspirational venue for AGI Open 2013.
