My new project is an investigation of the Isokon building in Hampstead, London, aka Lawn Road Flats. It's a fascinating grade one listed modernist building with an equally fascinating history. I'm writing a presentation for a peer review this week and I've found this, along with a peer crit last Friday, has really helped me consolidate my research and ideas so far. Below is a slide from my presentation, pictured are places where the very early seeds for this project originated in August last year. I visited the László Moholy-Nagy exhibition at the Guggenheim and the Diane Arbus exhibition at the MET Breuer, I was struck not only by the work of Arbus but also by the building designed by Marcel Breuer.
Before moving to America both Moholy-Nagy and Breuer were residents of Lawn Road Flats.
