Location: Peterlee, Durham, England
Year: 1955

This massive structure was originally built as part of a social housing development program in the County Durham, England. British artist Victor Pasmore designed the new town of Peterlee around this abstract pavilion, an experimental move that became a local controversy. The imposing structure became a hangout for local youths, and soon attracted graffiti and vandalism, which angered the town's residents. Now it is an architectural marvel worth seeing.
