I have always been interested in social housing design in the UK. Often, councils have shown a complete disregard for the designs of these spaces for economic gain and lack of social or spatial care. The spatial, social and environmental needs of the inhabitants are completely overlooked but also the simple fact that these places and spaces are for human beings worthy of nice and thought-out spaces. With a focus on the theme of dispossession, I looked at how these buildings which were originally 'intended' to be for the community and working people have become subject to gentrification, demolition or negligence - ultimately leaving local residents feeling dispossessed.
Playing with the past, I created mock brochures, posters and promotion videos for these 'newly built' flats. At the time of construction these buildings seemed to provide a glimmer of hope for those in disadvantaged situations and from disadvantaged backgrounds. They were exciting and contemporary pieces of design which ultimately ended up being completely neglected by the government, causing them to become run down and eventually disregarded by society.
