This icon of British 1930s architecture is a fascinating place to visit and is easy to find in leafy Hampstead. The museum is excellent. I shall be buying the book about the building next year!

This small but excellent gallery follows the building and subsequent history of the Lawn Road flats - an experiment in middle class social living in the mid 1930s with close links to the modernist movement of the Bauhaus. Rescued from almost total disintegration in 2000...More

This 1930s Modernist building stands out from others on a street in lower Hampstead. It's pure white, sleek and streamlined with long strips of balconies, and it looks like the side of one of those Trans-Atlantic ocean liners that people sailed back and forth on...More
