The latest AJ features in-depth studies of three revamped London council estates: at Silchester, Haworth Tompkins has avoided demolition in favour of integrating new buildings; Maccreanor Lavington’s impressive South Gardens replaces part of the Heygate Estate; while Sprunt has created a church and community centre at the heart of the rebuilt Stonegate Estate. We also meet Liz Peace, who is creating a new London suburb as chair of the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation; examine how the Grenfell Tower fire is affecting the future of public-sector housing; while Ian Abley provides the wider picture with a potted history of UK housing provision.
