It’s been a momentous year for DZG’s quirky Modernist Tectons . . .
Thanks to £1.15million Heritage Lottery funding we’ve restored four of Berthold Lubetkin’s pioneering structures, built between 193537 using concrete reinforced with steel rods.
At Easter we launched our new-look spacious Safari Shop, currently filled with Christmas goodies, and an integral Tecton Interpretation Centre, which explains the history of DZG’s 12 Tecton buildings the world’s largest single collection.
Repair work also enabled the eye-catching iconic wave Entrance to be restored to its former glory and all eyes including Santa’s – are currently on Kiosk One and the Bear Ravine on the lower site considered by many as being Lubetkin’s finest work which are being restored by DZG’s in-house Team Tecton, who are discovering quite a few hidden surprises along the way!
