Opened in 1967 by Her Majesty The Queen, Queen Elizabeth Hall is the second largest music venue on the South Bank after the Royal Festival Hall, and also houses the Purcell Room. A prime example of Brutalist architecture, the minimal and functional aesthetic of the concrete structures, along with the National Theatre, has become an iconic feature of London’s landscape.
Designed by lead architect Norman Engleback and assisted by John Attenborough, Alan Waterhouse, Dennis Crompton, Ron Herron, and Warren Chalk, the futuristic Brutalism cemented the Southbank complex of arts & music venues as the cultural heart of London.
Closed in 2015 for a two-year programme of sympathetic restoration, Queen Elizabeth Hall and the neighbouring Hayward Gallery will be reopening in 2018. The foyer will have been restored to its 1960s grandeur, as featured in this pop art print, and the restored complex will include a new shop from which this print will be exclusively available in Southbank Yellow.
Available in A4, A3, and A2 sizes to fit standard-size picture frames. Please note black frame is not included, for a guide on choosing a frame size take a look here.
Part of the South Bank pop art collection, this print features Art & Hue’s signature halftone style (halftone is an age-old technique that uses dots to make up the printed image, similar to newspapers or comic books) along with graphic blocks of colour.
