Last opportunity to visit these interesting buildings designed by Alison and Peter Smithson. A paradigmatic example of social housing development in the late 1960s, and in my opinion, designed in order to react and critisize some aspect of the Modern Movement’s orthodoxy.
Authorities pretend to demolish these constructions. Nowadays there is evidence the district is undergoing gentrification processes, and it´s easy to suppose this dynamic like a consequence of its close proximity to the business centre of Canary Wharf… so maybe it’s my last chance to visit them!
