Virtual Tour – Modernist Hampstead
2 December 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
In this virtual tour discover the revolutionary Modernist homes and idealistic architecture built in Hampstead in the 1930s such as The Sun House by Maxwell Fry, and 66 Frognal by Connell Ward and Lucas. Much of the architecture echoed design trends in Europe and the walk includes passing housing by the émigré architects Ernst Freud and Erno Goldfinger. Elements of eighteenth-century architectural design were also an influence for some architects.
Passing some more recent examples and of course striking non modernist Hampstead buildings, this walk will finish at the iconic and idealistic Isokon flats in Belsize Park.

“Very interesting and well delivered virtual tour of Modernist architecture in Hampstead, drawing on influences of designs from bygone eras. Advantage of virtual tour can cover large area in shorter time than actually walking and can zig zig!!
Great photos and expert knowledge of speaker.”
