Get Up Balfron Tower

If you missed it on Open House weekend you can legitimately get inside Goldfinger's Balfron Tower this weekend without stalking a resident. Artist Peter Wylie is exhibiting his paintings on the 21st floor, 4 of which are off the building they're hanging in. Called "From Modernist Social Housing To The Sea" the show moves to Lauderdale House, Waterlow Park, HIghgate on 3 February but while the views across the park are lovely, this is a great opportunity to get intimate with this iconic building and take in East London from on high next to an optimistic take on social housing. Open today and tomorrow, 1-5pm. Don't forget your camera. (Image and tip off from Mike King)

I went today around 3 and there was no sign of anything? I snuck into the building anyway, and it was a nice afternoon, but what gives?

Sounds like you didn't find the right flat. He was there alright... glad you got in anyway.
