Introduced to each other at the Sheffield Modern: Architecture Weekender in 2018, concrete collaborators Mandy Payne and Helen Angell have forged a strong friendship based on their mutual passion for brutalism and post-war architecture.

Many of the pieces in the exhibition were inspired by Modernist Mooches led by the inimitable Stephen Marland and honed on return visits. Exploring concrete hotspots such as Manchester, Salford and Huddersfield as well as their native South Yorkshire, they have attempted to capture the changing fortunes of our urban landscape, always with an eye on the poetic, the lyrical and the beautiful.
