If somebody has current photos, please demonstrate. It is a nice building.

Evil if the topic will disappear, or will be removed.

I am greeting.

so shit it's good.

i think i'm being generous in lopping off only 3 points for the fact that only architecture geeks like us would like it. i think what it needs is some investment, some energising, maybe a lick of paint, glass elevators, boot the dole monkeys out so they don't get the place run down again, etc etc.
but i'm not really that right wing.

Without a doubt Trellick is the greatest British Tower Block ever, no question.

I had a friend who owned a flat on the top floor. I spent Christmas Day there two years in a row, encapsulated in concrete brutalism, and it felt just right. Like an antidote to the overly saccharine and idyllic portrayal of Christmas everywhere. Even just entering the building was exciting - the bleakness of the lobby with a moody security guard, the seemingly endless ride in the ugly lift. Then, once out of the lift, it really hits you, the roughness of the building. Despite the private ownership of the flats, it looks and feels like a scary council estate. You almost expect a mugger to lurk around a corner, and it’s eerie and quiet up there. The top floor corridor with windows all the way to the floor make you feel like you could easily break the glass and slip out with a wrong step. I felt dizzy and slightly terrified every time. But then - inside the flat, it’s just lovely, and with a glass of wine and good company Christmas could begin, high up in the London sky.

First transmitted in 1991, architect Sand Helsel applauds Trellick Tower, a Brutalist tower block in west London, designed by Erno Goldfinger, and completed in 1972.

I like brutalism.Pity Pompey's Tricorn and Gateshead Trinity weren't listed in time.Preston's wonderful brutalist bus station has just managed to secure listing.

What really bothers me is the mess of the sides. Either make them all clean balconies or clad them over with glass and the thing would be vastly improved.
