ARTISTS AND ESPIONAGE: THE LAWN ROAD FLATS IN NW3

 

Deborah Lambert

 

 

This story has a plot worthy of Agatha Christie. The cast includesWalter Gropius, and Laszlo Moholy Nagy, refugees
from the Bauhaus in Germany, Henry Moore the sculptor, the writers Nicholas Monsarrat and Agatha Christie.The setting is The Lawn Road Flats, a startling Modernist block in a leafy road in North London. BUT  It was also home to a nest of Soviet spies, including the recruiter and controller of the Cambridge 5.This is the story of a ground breaking
building, now Grade 1 listed, and of the rich and complex lives of its residents.
