Urban Evolution

Urban Evolution focuses on how the life and architecture of the Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate in London has evolved over its lifetime. A Post-war brutalist social housing estate, designed by renowned London Borough of Camden architect, Neave Brown.

The Project has been produced with the intentions of publication and is already self published as a book dummy. The images were produced with a range of photographic mediums that represent the evolving ways that architecture and the built environment is now viewed. The book also includes a conversation with contemporary architect Peter Barber that provides a critical overview of the estate and current housing situation.

Presented bellow the image is a soundscape recorded on multiple visits to Rowley Way. It is a collage of sounds that help imagine what life is like within the estate. The peacefulness juxtaposed with the sounds of constant activity within the community is one factor that makes it a truly unique location.
