Laurie Grove, London Borough of Lewisham, London SE14 6NH, UK

Former public baths now Goldsmiths property. From Goldsmiths' website: "Laurie Grove baths is one of those special buildings. Thousands of south Londoners learned to swim here. It was a place where childhood memories were made. The pools were closed in 1991. In 1994 the building became the home of the Centre for Urban and Community Research, and an international renowned research centre on city life. It couldn't be a more perfect context to conduct urban studies, for the building itself is like a microcosm of the social history of the area."
