Modernist & Cinematic
Designed by Team 4 and cemented in history in A Clockwork Orange
Location: Radlett, Herts
Description: This Modernist country home was designed and built in the mid-1960s, by Team 4, an short-lived architecture firm which included Richard Rogers who would later design the Millennium Dome/O2 arena, The Lloyd's building, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
The house's interior was used as Mr. Alexander's house in Stanley Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange'.
A Clockwork Orange is a 1971 film written, directed and produced by Stanley Kubrick, adapted from Anthony Burgess's 1962 novella A Clockwork Orange. It features disturbing, violent images, facilitating its social commentary on psychiatry, youth gangs, and other social, political, and economic subjects in a dystopian, future Britain.
