Trellick tower- designed by erno goldfinger in mid 60's
31 storeys- about 110 metres high
grade II listed about 5 years ago
I had the pleasure of staying there for a while and it is really fantastic, a true case of the modernist ideal at work (apart from people chucking their washing machines etc from their balconies when they were past their sell-by date, but there's some things architects can't control). shame to see that it's now become another conquest for the nouveau riche
interesting trivia- the james bond 'Goldfinger'is named after Erno Goldfinger. He built several modernist houses on Ian Flemings road, therefore became the baddie in his next book!
