Landmark Isokon Flats to open doors as modern art galleries

  • Comment

The Isokon Flats, built in 1934, home to Walter Gropius, and described as a Modern milestone, will form galleries for modern art as part of London Open House. Measure, a group of young artists who use landmark buildings in London as temporary galleries, is running the project from 1926 September. The show, Minimal Existanz, will exhibit work from 10 artists including a flat full of wreckage for a sculpture themed on aircraft accidents in eight of the Hampstead flats and the stairwell. Isokon Plus, which still designs original furniture from the era, will also display work.

The flats are owned by Camden Council but Avanti Architects is due to start refurbishment at the end of the year for Notting Hill Housing Trust.
