Description

Original brutalist architecture print of the A listed building in Glasgow – Anniesland Court.

This limited edition screenprint comes with a flat satin blue tone. It focuses on the ‘sky bridge’ connecting the utility tower and the patterns that humans see create when confronted by stark repetitive shapes. It’s large, it’s decorative and it’s created by hand with spraypaint and silkscreen printing. Anniesland Court is a 22-storey residential tower block in the Anniesland area of Glasgow, Scotland, designed by J Holmes & Partners and completed in 1968. It is the tallest listed building in Scotland, and is remarkably similar to Ernő Goldfinger’s later and more famous Trellick Tower in London. It is the only tower block in Glasgow to have been granted a category A listing.

Anniesland Court was designed by architecture firm John Holmes and Partner and was built in the first stage between 1966 and 1968, with additional work on the ground floor from 1984 to 1985.

The building is unusual in that despite 22 storeys, the lift only has 7 stops. The design was meant to echo the structure of a traditional Glasgow Tenement lying on its side. Each of the 7 levels comprises 18 homes – 6 upstairs two-bedroom flats, 6 downstairs two-bedroom flats and 6 single one-room flats with level access off the main corridor.

All pieces in this edition are completed on A2 (42cm x 59cm) 300gsm bright white card, using fade resistant aerosol paints and water-based screen-printing ink. They are all individually stencilled, hand-printed, signed, titled, editioned and embossed. They each come backed on two sheets of corrugated cardboard and sealed in a cellophane slip.   A plastic free ‘Eco Option’ is available at checkout.  With this option the art is rolled carefully into cardboard packaging with tissue paper.
