Barbican 1969

Stumbled across this film about the Barbican made in 1969 and can’t stop watching.  It’s a planning/development pitch video to sell it and it’s only half finished being built.  I’m struck by the artisan style, with a mix of inventive shots and archive footage detailing the history of the City of London. Bit obsessed with the typeface used on this title card as well!
