Midcentury Modern East, Sunday 11 October 10-4
Head east to the recently refurbished Grade II listed Haggerston School, Erno Goldfinger’s only secondary built between 1964 and ’65. The Hungarian-born London-based Modernist was one of the first architects to develop the use of concrete aesthetically in the UK inspired by Auguste Perret and Le Corbusier. Visit the show and get a rare glimpse inside this working school which has some of Goldfinger’s boldest interiors to date. Erno Goldfinger was the architect behind Trellick Tower in Golborne Rd and the inspiration behind the Bond character of the same name. He was a neighbour of Ian Fleming’s in Willow Road, Hampstead, where they fell out over the development of Goldfinger’s house – now owned by the National Trust and well worth a vist.
