The Red Road flats were the answer to a city’s housing crisis. Originally built in the 1960s they were described as ‘villages in the sky’ and created on a wave of hope and optimism. Unfortunately, this vision was misplaced. Poverty and crime combined with chronic under-investment meant that they became uninhabitable to the point where they were demolished.

To many, the Red Road flats were an ugly eyesore, symbolic of a dark time for city planners and architects. For others, they held a bleak, monolithic beauty. These abstract studies show the Red Road flats in an extraordinary and dramatic light.
