Too Cool For School: London Zoo Penguin Pool by Berthold Lubetkin-


Happy world penguin day everybody! In celebration, today’s post features three of my favourite things: Modernism, monochrome and penguins!

Russian architect Berthold Lubetkin, who emigrated to England in the 1930s, was probably most famous for Highpoint, a block of flats in North London. He was a pioneer of the modern movement in Britain and worked on many projects. He designed the penguin pool at London zoo in 1934 which housed the penguins until recently. The  pool is still at London Zoo today and is now grade 1 listed but unfortunately the penguins have been moved to another enclosure.
