From the bottom drawer


I found these photographs (taken c.1988?) in the bottom of a plan chest drawer. They show James Stirling’s Runcorn Housing which was designed in 1967, built 1970-1977 and demolished in 1990. Read what Stirling had to say about the original brief for the project and the subsequent decision to demolish: Link to article in Building Design.

    We used to live in the blue & yellow houses nearby until 1987, I’d love to see photos of those!
