Robin Hood Gardens
Robin Hood Gardens is a housing estate in Poplar, East London. It was built by the Smithsons Partnership between 1969 & 1972. Built in the style of so-called Brutalism it was the Smithsons' take on the-street-in-the-sky. As a public housing project it is often seen as a failure both in terms of its construction & its social history. As an 'urbanism' it may be ripe for regeneration.
