Bring back light to its original Barbican home

  • Comment

You invite suggestions for a new home for the chandelier that used to grace the staircase at the Barbican Arts Centre (AJ 11.1.000). I have a radical, if naive, suggestion: restore it to its original home.

It was, after all, purposedesigned for that location. I agree with the Queen that it is beautiful, and was appalled to see that it had gone. Its removal is comparable with flogging off the pulpit of a church!
