We’ve moved again and this is our view. I’ve mentioned this story before, but I love it, so I’m going to tell it again. Trellick Tower was designed by the architect Ernö Goldfinger who also designed other buildings in London, amongst them 2 Willow Road. It is said that Goldfinger was a humourless man, with a nasty temperament. Both he and his designs were so hated that Ian Fleming, who wrote James Bond, named the villain Goldfinger. The Trellick Tower is 98 meters tall, with 32 storeys. It was built in 1972 and looks better in the dark.

 ET IKON 

Vi har flyttet igjen og dette er utsikten. Jeg har nevnt denne historien før, men den er så god, så nå forteller jeg den igjen. Trellick Tower ble tegnet av arkitekten Ernö Goldfinger, som også tegnet andre bygninger i London, blant annet 2 Willow Road. Det sies at Goldfinger var en mann uten humor, med et heftig temperament og både han og bygningene han laget var så hatet at Ian Fleming, som skrev James Bond, kalte skurken for Goldfinger. Trellick Tårnet er 98 meter høyt, med 32 etasjer. Det ble bygget i 1972 og ser best ut i mørke.
