The demolition of Robin Hood Gardens

The Robin Hood Gardens estate was completed in 1972 and now, some forty five years later, it is undergoing phased demolition to make way for the Blackwall Reach regeneration scheme.  I’ve realised its destruction isn’t something I care to photograph.  So instead I have been looking anew at photographs that were made prior to Open House London 2016 when I was involved in staging an onsite exhibition. These images are now in this Robin Hood Gardens project.
