Description

Public housing provision in the late 1960s, when Robin Hood Gardens was designed, looks dramatically different in the 21st Century. Public housing, once a thing of national pride - for those who built, administered and lived in it - has become contradictory ground, imposed by policies that value private ownership over state-funded homes.Regeneration! brings together conversations, drawings, archives and photographs from Robin Hood Gardens, the Smithsons-designed brutalist housing estate in Poplar, before its planned demolition. This book is the outcome of a collaborative project between artist Jessie Brennan and some of the people who live - or have lived - and work on the estate.It is a contribution to the debates impacting households across Tower Hamlets, one of London's poorest and most un-equal boroughs, and raises questions about the intentions, language and processes of regeneration, namely: who is it for?
