Opening in 1934 the Isokon Building or Lawn Road Flats was an experiment in social housing; it became a home and a hub for a variety of people - artists, writers (Agatha Christie), Russian spies and refugees including notable artists from the Bauhaus, fleeing Nazi Germany, such as László Moholy Nagy. These residents, the building’s history and modernist photography from the same era inspired this project.
