Thamesmead , 2005

I have been adding images to This Life in Ruins. 

Some of the ones I have been revisiting are these from 2005 of The Thamesmead Housing Estate. Recent photographs show bits being torn down. 

Quite a few things have been filmed here including "Clockwork Orange" 

I am sorry not to get to bear witness and capture it's demise and rebirth.  I have in my searches come across some nice images but my favorite so far are at:

Love London Council Housing 

Please do have a look, some lovely images that give a sympathetic eye to the idealistic origins of these weird dystopian estates.
