We look back at some of the highlights from our Instagrammer in Residence, Philippa (@lostandffound) and share some of our favourite shots.
Throughout March, she got to know our Brutal towers in our Architecture Tour, visited our Barbican Library, rediscovered her passion for ballet with Ballet Black‘s Double Bill, and attended our very own festival of art and entertainment, Barbican OpenFest. Head to our Instagram to see her photos.
What a selection of sheet music at the @barbicancentre library! I've got my eye on 'The Best Songs from 1890–1920'. Although I'm also pretty keen on 'The Best Songs Ever' – no date specified so I can only assume these are just the best songs in the history of the world – which sounds legit. Colour palette also very on trend 👌 11/10 Would borrow these books.
‘It feels like the Barbican is full of contradictions – harsh yet serene, full of history yet new and exciting, well-known yet undiscovered’ – @lostandffound Taken by Philippa (@lostandffound), our Instagrammer in Residence for the month of March, on one of our Architecture Tours.

Is it too late for me to learn ballet dancing?! I think the last time I went to the ballet was about 20 years ago, when I was way too young to fully appreciate the abilities of the dancers. But this performance by @originalballetblack at the @barbicancentre was totally mind-blowing – such an incredible display of both strength and gracefulness. _________________ For the month of March I am Instagrammer in Residence for the @barbicancentre – follow me for more Barbican snaps!
‘I really enjoy looking for interesting details, shapes and colours, and finding beauty in the mundane’ – @lostandffound Can you guess where this picture was taken…? We sent Philippa (@lostandffound), our Instagrammer in Residence, on one of our Architecture Tours to find out more about our Brutal towers and the story behind them. Head to the blog (link in bio) to find out more about her.
‘To me a good photo is one which evokes a feeling and has an element of intrigue – perhaps leaving the viewer wondering what lies outside the frame’ – @lostandffound Photo by Philippa (@lostandffound), our Instagrammer in Residence, who went on one of our Architecture Tours.
