The Barbican Centre is a performing arts centre situated in London’s Barbican Estate and is one of London’s most famous examples of Brutalist architecture. It has always been the subject controversy and has now been designated a site of special architectural interest for its scale, cohesion and ambition.

The centre has a complex multi-level layout with numerous entrances. Lines painted on the ground help would-be audience members avoid getting lost on the walkways of the Barbican Housing Estate on the way to the centre.
The design clearly demonstrates the Brutalist ideology which decrees that architects should to pay less attention to decoration and let the buildings’ materials resemble exactly what they are, leaving all the structural components clearly visible.

There are parallels between the HIGH tech collection and this location. HIGH Tech clothes are made in high performance technical materials, which define their shape and behaviour. The laser cut edges, ultra sound and heat sealing in their construction are all clearly visible.
Another parallel lies in the word “performance”.


The Barbican centre is host to classical and contemporary concerts along with theatre performances. The London symphony orchestra is based in the Centre's Concert HalI, and it is the London-based venue of the Royal Shakespeare Company.


A significant part of the HIGH Tech collection is devoted to a new kind of formal dress that is ideal for anyone who wears it as a working uniform. These clothes look the part while allowing for the freedom of movement that is essential to any performing artist. They are also easy to maintain. They also follow the modernist requirement that form should follow function; fulfilling the task of being both useful and beautiful.
