London's Camden Council has announced that it is selling the Isokon Flats building, which was designed by Wells Coates in 1934 and is recognised as a Modernist masterpiece. The Isokon Trust, whose patron is RIBA president Marco Goldschmied, has welcomed the move and has made a bid for the building. The trust has proposed reinstating the original Isobar restaurant which was designed by Marcel Breuer. 'The possibility of an exhibition and seminar space would also be of direct benefit to the community, ' trustee Chris Flannery said. The flats, also known as Lawn Road Flats, were granted Grade I-listed status in 1999, but they have stood empty for two years and have been the focus of continued vandalism.
