Dudley Court by Powell & Moya for Camden London Borough Council; 1973-83. On the right: Oasis Sports Centre by the Borough of Holborn Architect's Department under S.A.G. Cook, Borough Architect, and Berkshire House by J. Seymour Harris & Partners for The Hammerson Property & Investment Trust Ltd.; designed from 1957, built in 1959-61. The Baths Development Scheme by Holborn Borough Council consisted of two parts. The first was the remodelling of the existing open air pool and the construction of a new indoor one ("the Council's part of the Scheme", according to the Report of the Baths and Washouses Committee, 15 June 1959; the indoor pool opened on 1 December 1960 ); the second was the construction of the office block, originally called Leicester House and now Berkshire House, “on the High Holborn frontage of the site” by "private developers" (op.cit. ). The office block was reclad and heightened by DEGW in 1990. Also pictured, top left, is Renzo Piano's Central St. Giles Court; 2002-10. My favourite outdoor swimming pools in Europe are: 1. Piscine Keller, Paris 2. (The ) Oasis, London 3. Kombibad Gropiusstadt, Berlin 4. Letno kopališče, Celje 5.

Talking of which... 105-214 Robin Hood Gardens, Robin Hood Gardens [Robin Hood Lane Site], by Alison + Peter Smithson for the GLC; designed in 1966-70, built in 1968-72. To be demolished at the beginning of Phase 3 of the "Blackwall Reach" redevelopment and replaced with a block by C.F. Møller Architects. Phase 3 is due to start on site in 2021-2 once the residents living in the existing building have been rehoused into the completed Phase 2 homes in four new buildings (designed by Haworth Tompkins and Metropolitan Workshop, replacing the now demolished 1-104 Robin Hood Gardens; they are due for completion in 2019 and 2021 respectively ). #alisonandpetersmithson #robinhoodgardens #brutalism #newbrutalism #brutalist #brutalistarchitecture #brutalist_architecture #brutal_architecture #betonbrut #concrete #rawconcrete #modernism #modernist #modernmovement #modernistarchitecture #architecture #housing #socialhousing #housingestate #councilestate #estate #poplar #towerhamlets #london #nofilter

Balfron Tower, Brownfield Estate [Rowlett Street], by Ernő Goldfinger; designed in 1963-4 for the LCC, built in 1965-8 for the GLC. Grade II* listed. It was my friend Miloš who discovered a brilliant quote about the "hopefulness" of scaffoldings. It is by - and that's an unusual source - G.K. Chesterton. In his Father Brown detective story The Point of a Pin (1932 ) the hero muses: "I wish all houses would stop while they still have the scaffolding up. It seems almost a pity that houses are ever finished. They look so fresh and hopeful with all that fairy filigree of white wood, all light and bright in the sun; and a man so often only finishes a house by turning it into a tomb." After seeing what @studioegretwest and @abrogersdesign - supported by @historicengland and Tower Hamlets London Borough Council - have done during their shocking "constructive conservation" of Balfron Tower, I too wish that the scaffolding would have stayed up forever, so that I could have remained hopeful. Saying that, no amount of “constructive conservation” can really destroy any view of Balfron Tower at dusk, even when the photo is taken from 105-214 Robin Hood Gardens. #ernőgoldfinger #ernogoldfinger #goldfingerstudio #balfrontower #brutalism #newbrutalism #brutalist #brutalistarchitecture #brutalist_architecture #brutal_architecture #betonbrut #concrete #rawconcrete #modernism #modernist #modernmovement #modernistarchitecture #architecture #housing #socialhousing #housingestate #councilestate #estate #balfrontowerconservationarea #brownfieldestate #poplar #towerhamlets #london #nofilter

Grand déballage du... jeudi: Damiers d'Anjou, Place de Seine, Courbevoie, by Jacques Binoux and Michel Folliasson with Abro and Henri Kandjian; 1976. The Damiers blocks will be demolished and demoliton notices can be seen everywhere, for instance on the roof of the low-rise on the right. They are going to be replaced by the "Hermitage Plaza Towers" designed by Foster + Partners, which will, apparently, "become a symbol for the Olympic Games in Paris 2024". #jacquesbinoux #michelfolliasson #abrokandjian #henrikandjian #lesdamiers #damiersdanjou #brutalism #brutalist #brutalistarchitecture #brutalist_architecture #brutal_architecture #newbrutalism #betonbrut #rawconcrete #brick #modernism #modernist #modernmovement #modernistarchitecture #architecture #frencharchitecture #hautsdeseine #courbevoie #ladefense #iledefrance #nofilter
