Brutalisme in Londen; Robin Hood Gardens (3)

De sloop van Robin Hood Gardens in Londen (Alison en Peter Smithson, 1972) is gestart. Filmmaker Joe Gilbert maakte 2 jaar geleden deze film over dit iconische gebouw.

 

As demolition appears imminent, this film covers the final chapter of Robin Hood Gardens estate in east London. Using the honest opinions of Timothy Brittain-Catlin and Amy Frearson, they discuss the unique brutalist design as well as the social problems that have plagued the area ever since it was built.
