I actualy like living in high-rise accommodation, but have seen planty of media picutres like these…many are being pulled down in the UK, of course.
Is this being demolished?
Thanks for that Nexus7 – these particular flats are quite old and were built in the late 1950s/ early 60s. They feature heavily in my work on RBubble if you wish to check it out . They are quite unique as they are the largest Grade 2 listed building in Europe so cannot be demolished but are being modernised. Public opimnmnion here is completely divided about high rise flats with some arguing that they are an eyesore and promote social problems (in my experience these people have never been in a block of flats though!) and others arguing the functionality and aesthetics of concrete brut / beton Brut as being futuristic and utopian Sid
Interesting topic, either way! – most of the flats in Covetnry where I used to liver werer demolished – much against the wishes of a lot of the residents there. My block is stil standing, though. Someone campaigned hard and unsuccessfully to get his block listed, to kep the bulldozers away.
In fact, the pics I have based on that were featured in issue 13 of the Solo magazine.
I will certainly look at your pics though. From a technique point of view, making a sereis of this theme in limited time has been a bit of a challenge.
I live in a ‘commie block’ in Budapest now, also in need or renovation.
