Torii (traditional Japanese gate) discovered at the Barbican Estate, the London temple of brutalist architecture typical of the 1970s. A concrete arch as a separation between the physical and the spiritual world. A symbolic entrance between the hustle and bustle of the city and the calm of the Barbican Center.
