ON  ROBIN HOOD

GARDENS

‘The bizarre case of the artifact that landed on Robin Hood Gardens and prevented them from being demolished’

The project is located on Alison and Peter Smithson’s brutalist project of Robin Hood Gardens and explores the possibility of their renovation. The greatest part of the original project is the artificial topography, which flanked by two concrete buildings. These residential blocks will be transformed into a university campus by placing new metallic structures on top of the original concrete buildings without transmitting to them new loads. Thus, making the volumes taller, we tense and emphasize the green central space.
