So what’s it like to live your life as part of a 1970s Modern concrete classic? This great little film, made by the residents of The Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate (commonly known as Rowley Way), tells all. (For a link to the film click here: http://vimeo.com/15161364)
The residents decided to make their own film exploring the ideas behind the design of the estate and in the process interviewed neighbours, its architect Neave Brown, and others.
Whether you love or loathe the architecture this film is a triumph – it’s a real celebration of many different lives and lifestyles lived as part of a Modern community.
