these are some photos i took last winter around the aylesbury estate (the one on the channel 4 thing), which is due for demolition. i find its scale quite compelling, though as a middle class white boy art student it's too easy to romanticise these places. burgess park (first picture), with its roads to nowhere and huge expanse of nothing, is also a favourite of mine as an antidote to all the (delightful but) predictable victorian, shrubbery-laden parks in SE london. i wonder what it'll be like when boris has ejaculated his £2 million on it.
flickr architecture groups i enjoy, from srs bizness to the more """"quirky"""":
