In this fast-paced self-initiated research project, I explored a historically significant piece of social housing - the Balfron Tower - just before it was completely renovated (again creating unaffordable and exclusionary housing in the capital). Using an SLR camera, my focus was to capture the substantiality of the concrete structure.
From these photographs, I created a simplistic publication where each image is accompanied by my research findings. Gathering on-the-ground research with ex-tenants I connected with whilst photographing, as well as secondary research, helped to inform the written aspect to the publication. This writing included information on the structure, the situationally historic impact of the building itself, its controversial designer - and bond villain name-sake inspiration - Erno Goldfinger, the significance of social housing design at the time of construction, and the social implications of the rennovation.
