Time Out says

Designed by Hungarian architect Ernö Goldfinger in 1963, this modernist masterpiece was built to house some of east London’s poorest residents. It inspired JG Ballard’s iconic novel ‘High Rise’, and was later saved from demolition by Historic England. It’s now regarded as a genuinely important part of British architectural history.
