Dezeen Wire: in an article for Domus magazine, design critic Justin McGuirk examines the social and physical decline of London's social housing, discussing the part played by luxury real-estate developers and how architects have been held accountable.
Council housing blocks in Hackney, Newham, and Southwark are cited as examples, as McGuirk calls for the British government to accept responsibility for the city's housing crisis and to work with architects to protect residents from the ruthlessness of the property market.
