The future of pavilions... yesterday.

In the 1950's, artist and architect Victor Pasmore was teaching at the university of Durham. Whilst looking for idea's to change and modernise the local Durham Town of Peterlee, a development manager from the local council spotted Pasmore's work at a local exhibition and immediately asked him to design a pavilion to give the town an arty edge..

It's a bit brutal, however it's still quite a haunting looking thing just sitting there, resonating images of the 60's and 70's PIF's and kids at play...
