Lost Destination: Trellick Tower
Trellick Tower was chosen by the readers of Mr Hyde (the daily email from Shortlist) as the building most deserving our Lost Destination treatment.
Designed by Ernö Goldfinger, the brutalist Trellick Tower is a 322ft tall, 31-storey block of flats in North Kensington, London. It was commissioned by the Greater London Council in 1966 and completed in 1972, and is possibly one of the most famous (and controversial) social housing projects of the 1970s. Originally drawn freehand in 3B pencil on butcher paper, it was granted Grade II listed status in 1998 in recognition of its architectural importance.
Part of our Lost Destination series of prints which takes inspiration from the iconic travel posters of the first half of the 20th century. They celebrate the unique but often forgotten beauty of buildings that in their heyday were destinations in their own right, but have since been either immersed in the everyday or demolished.
