Ferrier Estate, pre-demoliton (became Kidbrooke Village), London

ES article

After the council moved the tenants out, parts of the estate were still open to the public for a while due to the scale of the works involved (and some of the fences were fairly easy to scale). The new houses and apartment buildings were constructed in stages over several years across the 270 acre site. I used to take pictures occasionally when down there. Even though it wasn't my patch, or industrial to residential, I still found myself using some of the framing conventions I'd developed, including obscuring the buildings with trees which is something I became a bit obsessed by.
