Mid Century Bonanza!

This weekend we’re looking forward to a Sunday shopping treat like no other when Mid Century East returns to Hackney and as an added bonus it’s set in the rather splendid Grade II listed Haggerston School.

This stunning modernist building is Erno Goldfinger’s only secondary school and was built in 1964. The Hungarian-born London based architect was the first to develop the use of concrete aesthetically in the UK inspired by Auguste Perret and Le Corbusier; he was the architect behind the now famous Trellick Tower and the inspiration behind the Bond character of the same name!
