It was the year before last that I was walking from one place to another in the area round South Hampstead station when I was struck by the look of the housing estate on Ainsworth Way. It is only subsequently I have discovered that the estate was of architectural note. A grand scheme hatched in 1965, but not completed until 1978 it was the brainchild of Camden Council’s forward thinking director of Architecture, Sydney Cook, and the architect Neave Brown. It had fallen into disrepair during the 80’s and now has a touch of the dystopia about it, though I imagine it would be fine to live in.
