Hallam Tower Hotel, Sheffield, UK (1965-Abandoned)






Unfortunately they ruined the look of the windows by switching to white plastic frames, and the building is now abandoned.

Really great video from 1959 about the newly constructed town of Stevenage, UK

And one from 1969 about the Barbican Center in London

That chair puzzled me. Does anyone know anything about its designer and country of production? We had plenty of identical ones in Poland, but it definitely comes from different country (there was no export of modern furniture outside the country, unfortunately).

Endo Pharmaceutical Laboratories, Garden City, NY, USA (1964)
Architect: Paul Rudolph
Corduroy concrete was all the rage back then.













Sadly they seem to have added some ugly handrails on the roof later on, and replaced the sleek black window frames.

Bobertz Residence, San Diego County, CA, USA (1953)

I would move here in a heartbeat. Everything about it is just gorgeous.












Maybe I'd replace the flooring with brown stone tiles.
