Encounter: Architecture and Design - 27th April 2016

Presented by John Escolme and Judy Matheson, 'Encounter' speaks to modernist architects and allows them a voice to explain why they created what they did. This week: Stefi Orazi at Mansfield Road Estate. When a group of architects are at the top of their game, it’s worth investigating their work in more detail, and in the third of their visits to a council estate built by the London Borough of Camden Architects Department, John and Judy drop in at the home of graphics designer Stefi Orazi who lives at the Mansfield Road Estate, a short walk from Gospel Oak Overground. Built between 1974 and 1980 by Gordon Benson and Alan Forsyth for the Borough, this was one of the last of the architects departments’ in-house schemes. Orazi tours us through her ground and lower-ground floor flat, reflects on the close-knit community at Mansfield Road, and discusses the problems of the government ‘right to buy’ scheme.
