MAN ABOUT THE TRELLICK TOWER
London Festival of Architecture (June 2017)
Following a sell out season in 2016, Tim Ross and Kit Warhurst are thrilled to return to the UK as part of the London Festival of Architecture to perform their brand new show.
For the last four years they have taken temporary possession of Architecturally significant buildings and skillfully blended storytelling, music and design in a mold breaking format that has seen them literally sell out houses across the globe.
Following rave reviews for the recent film series, Streets of Your Town, Tim and Kit welcome you to a host of unique properties around London.

Trellick Tower by Erno Goldfinger (1972)
Trellick Tower is a 31-storey block of flats in Kensal Town Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London. It was designed in the Brutalist style by architect Erno Goldfinger, after a commission from the Greater London Council in 1966, and completed in 1972. A Grade II listed building, Goldfinger's design is based on his earlier and slightly smaller Balfron Tower in Poplar, east London. It has a long, thin profile, with a separate lift and service tower linked at every third storey to the access corridors in the main building; flats above and below the corridor levels have internal stairs. The building contains 217 flats and was originally entirely owned by the GLC with the flats rented as council flats.
