I am fascinated by the Barbican and found this book very interesting, with great photography. There are various reports and write ups but a whole lot of photos, pictures and diagrams too. It would have been nice if more had been added about the other buildings present at the Barbican like the Centre and Conservatory, but it was still a good read - is mainly about the housing estate only and features the properties, property types, floor plans and photography of interiors and exteriors of various flats there, as well as short accounts from past and present occupants. Longer write ups too about its history and development. Very interesting read. Recommend on amazon as its almost half the cost as in the shops!
