Les aventures en Île-de-France II: Damiers d'Anjou, Place de Seine, Courbevoie, by Jacques Binoux and Michel Folliasson with Abro and Henri Kandjian; 1976. The quartet designed most of the Saisons in La Défense, including all four Damiers blocks, the Allianz-Neptune Tower, serviced apartments Citadines, Fraser Suites Harmonie and hotels Ibis and Novotel. The Damiers will be demolished and replaced by "Hermitage Plaza" designed by Foster + Partners, which will, apparently, "create a new community at the gateway to La Défense". #jacquesbinoux #michelfolliasson #abrokandjian #henrikandjian #lesdamiers #damiersdanjou #brutalism #brutalist #brutalistarchitecture #brutalist_architecture #brutal_architecture #newbrutalism #betonbrut #rawconcrete #brick #modernism #modernist #modernmovement #modernistarchitecture #architecture #frencharchitecture #hautsdeseine #courbevoie #ladefense #iledefrance #nofilter

Ashfield House, Highbury Estate, Grosvenor Avenue, by the the LCC Valuer's Department; 1946-8. Elain Harwood: 'When building resumed in July 1945, the Clerk of the [London County] Council, Eric Salmon, recommended that, for efficiency and speed, responsibility for housing be given to the Valuer, Cyril Walker. This arrangement was for three years, later extended to five. [Head of the Architect's Department John H.] Forshaw complained that the proposal went against recommendations of the Ministry of Health and the RIBA, and when it was approved despite protests from Patrick Abercrombie and the LCC Staff Association, he resigned (... ) The LCC built 44,000 new homes within its boundaries in the years 1945-9, and many more ouside the county. But architects were aghast at losing control of England's largest housing programme and Robert Matthew, who came from the Department of Health for Scotland as Forshaw's successor, determined to win it back.'

Report from the Housing Committee, Islington London Borough Council, 22 November 1973: 'AWARDS FOR GOOD DESIGN IN HOUSING 1973 3. Each year a medal and diploma award scheme is promoted by the Minister for Housing and Construction in collaboration with the Royal Institute of British Architects. Its fundamental aim is to encourage a high standard of design and layout in housing schemes in the public and private sectors. The London Borough of Islington has to compete within the Greater London area, which consists of the 32 London Boroughs and the Greater London Council. In this region three medals were awarded and four schemes were highly commended, and we are pleased to report that two of the schemes which were highly commended are in Islington. These schemes are at Theseus Walk, Nelson Place, N.1. and at Legion Close, Offord Road, N.1. Both schemes were designed by the staff of the Council's Architectural [sic] Department and we have asked that our congratulations be conveyed to the staff concerned.' #islingtonarchitectsdepartment #theseuswalk #alfhead #brutalism #brutalist #brutalistarchitecture #brutalist_architecture #brutal_architecture #newbrutalism #betonbrut #concrete #brick #modernism #modernist #modernmovement #modernistarchitecture #architecture #socialhousing #councilhousing #housingestate #cityroadbasin #angel #islington #london #nofilter

Gaymead, Abbey Estate [Abbey Estate Development - Stage III/ Abbey Estate - Redevelopment] by C.E. Jacob, Hampstead Borough Housing Architect, in association with J.M. Austin-Smith and Partners; designed from 1963, built for London Camden Borough Council in 1967-8. Report of the Planning and Development Committee, Camden London Borough Council, 26 September 1966: 'We had visualised that Stage III, which will be a two and four-storey development of 156 maisonettes and flats, would be developed using a fully industrialised system and exhaustive investigation of various industrialised systems has been carried out within the Borough Architect's Department, and also in conjunction with the National Building Agency, to find an acceptable system which would be economic for this project. It has been found, however, that pre-cast or factory produced units could not compete economically with the rationalised traditional approach for a scheme this size. This conclusion was reached after numerous discussions with technical officers of the Ministry [of Housing and Local Government] and has been a considerable disappointment to us.' #cejacob #jmaustinsmithandpartners #camdenarchitectsdepartment #abbeyestate #abbeyroad #brutalism #newbrutalism #brutalist #brutalistarchitecture #brutalist_architecture #brutal_architecture #newbrutalism #betonbrut #concrete #betonbrut #brick #flatroofs #modernism #modernist #modernmovement #modernistarchitecture #londonarchitecture #architecture #housing #socialhousing #councilhousing #southhampstead #camden #london #nofilter
