Robbing the poor to pay the rich (FLÂ10)
The final days of Robin Hood Gardens
Standing in the shadows of the financial towers of Canary Wharf, Robin Hood Gardens was completed in 1972 as an important model of social housing. The two long curved blocks were designed as ‘streets in the sky’ that shielded the residents from the noise of the nearby A12. Long the subject of battle between developers, tenants and architecture fans alike, its demolition looms as part of a wider local regeneration plan.
