London's Great Experiment in Urban Housing
 
   
Event Date 30/10/2010
 
Location London 
 
Country United Kingdom 
 
Description Saturday 30 October 2010, 2.00pm - 6.00pm

The housing projects built by Camden when Sydney Cook was borough architect (1965-73) constitute not just the last great output of social housing in the UK but also arguably the most substantial investigation into the architecture of urban housing undertaken in the past half-century. These projects – including Neave Brown’s Fleet Road and Alexandra Road, Benson & Forsyth’s Branch Hill and Maiden Lane, and Peter Tabori’s Highgate New Town – continue to provide a benchmark for architects today.

To mark the centenary of Sydney Cook’s birth in 1910, The Building Centre and NLA are presenting a symposium and exhibition on this remarkable programme, which also included projects by Colquhoun & Miller, Edward Cullinan, Farrell Grimshaw and James Stirling.
