The un missable diamond-patterned facade made of pre fabricated concrete this multi-storey brutalist building was designed by Michael Blampied & Partners and opened in 1971 to service the new Debenhams flagship department store on Oxford Street.
Its unusual design consists of a tessellated façade of prefabricated concrete polygons, the bottom point of each slotting alongside one of the corners of another.The frame is open to the elements, acting like the radiator grill of a car in that it ventilates fumes from the interior.
For this artwork, I wanted to try a different style that accentuates the sharp geometric diamond patterened facade of the building.
The car park was denied listed status by the government heritage body Historic England, and probably just a matter of time before it gets bull dozed for another mall, hotel or super store of some sort.
