63 Belshaw Place

Regent Park South, one of the five fourteen story Maisonette Towers, by Peter Dickinson is almost demolished.

Appropriating ideas from Le Corbusier’s Unite d’habitation in Marseilles, Dickinson , then with Page and  Steele Architects won the Massey Silver Medal in 1958 for these towers. His design fulfilled the Corbusian ideal of  modernist towers in a park like setting.

The document of this spectacle captures the strength of the structure as it is torn apart.
