Glenkerry House is the little sister to the better known Balfron Tower in Poplar and Trellick Tower in North Kensington – all designed by the British Hungarian Jewish Marxist Ernő Goldfinger as high-rise dwellings for working class Londoners.
It is also the birthplace of Open City's favourite cat, who was commemorated on a t-shirt this year. Inspired by the instagram account Cats of Brutalism, this Open City T-shirt features a sepia-toned photographic print memorialising Aino sleeping on Ernő Goldfinger's Glenkerry House, London's only Brutalist housing co-operative in Poplar.
Our Model London series of paper models brings the city to you, and will leave you with a pint-sized version of the iconic building to keep on your shelf. The combination of both will make the perfect gift for any lover of brutalist architecture!
