Trellic Tower











Here (only few for now) delayed photographs from my previous visit in London.
They were taken in one of London’s Brutalist icons – Trellict Tower designed in 1966 by Ernő Goldfinger.
This building located in North Kensington, came to epitomise problems of Modernism in the late 70’. I guess that even now a lot of people see it as unpleasant, ugly, even inhumane. In recent years though, thanks to the concerted efforts of the residents, the Tower's reputation has been transformed.
I have to say that I saw both faces of this amazing building…
Big thank you to all the residents I met that were so nice and open to share their thoughts, tell me about their lives and... even let me in! :)

I love "brutal" architecture and even if I can emphatize with people seeing it unpleasent, I still think it's magical.
Not the fairy type of magic but pure and raw force of creation and destruction.
Yeah, it's nice.
