Estate From A Clockwork Orange to Be Torn Down, Replaced With Less Dystopian Buildings

London's Thamesmead was used as a backdrop in the 1971 film

London's Thamesmead estate had the dubious honor of serving as the backdrop of Stanley Kubrick's 1971 film A Clockwork Orange, creating a public perception that its Brutalist buildings looked futuristic, but the worst kind of futuristic. Now, the 1960s structures are on the verge of being torn down in favor of a £1.5 billion project that would see 20,000 new homes constructed. Proctors and Matthews Architects and Mecanoo are behind the new designs, below.
