5 notable modernist buildings in London
1) Isokon Building
This daringly modern, sleek and white-painted concrete apartment building was designed by Wells Coates and completed in 1934. It was a significant experiment in new ways of urban living and became the epicentre of the London avant-garde, with early residents including Walter Gropius and László Moholy-Nagy. Now a gallery has opened there to tell the history of the building and the Modern movement.
