Tricorn Centre, Portsmouth, was designed by Owen Luder and Rodney Gordon and opened in 1966. In the 1980s it was voted 3rd Ugliest Building in the UK, and in 2001 one poll voted it the Most Hated Building in the UK. Sadly it was demolished in 2004. Comes gift boxed.
Material: Cast Concrete
Size: 4.5cm high, 6.6 cm wide, 3.5 cm deep (approx)
Our concrete sculptures are individually hand cast in solid concrete. This means that each piece will have distinctive markings and minor blemishes due to air bubbles in the concrete. This is a natural part of the material and will mean that no two pieces are ever exactly the same.
As a micro business we hold very little stock and our products are usually made to order. We aim to make and ship your artwork within 3-5 weeks of purchase. If you require order by a specific date before this, please let us know- we always aim to ensure it is there on time.
I grew up in Pompey in the 80s and 90s and spent a lot of time at the Tricorn in my teens. This has taken pride of place in my living room. Would love to see another version of this one day.
Excellent service, both in terms of speed and flexibility.
I was a student in Portsmouth between 1998-2001 and I was obsessed with The Tricorn. I used to walk around it with a camera and I loved its weird angles, dark corners and pigeon poo splattered derelict store fronts. I wish I could have known it when it was new and properly in use and also maybe got a tour around the insides. I thought it would always be there so I was very sad it was entirely demolished and all there is now is a flat expanse of car park. My girlfriend got me Mini #020 as a birthday gift and I absolutely adore it. As a fan of Brutalism, urban exploration and The Tricorn there never was a more perfect and beautifully crafted memorial. The gift packaging is stunning and I would love it if you could do a Tricorn part2 so I could keep it in my brain and on my shelf forever. Thanks so much!
