Explore the Aylesbury Estate, the biggest social housing project in Europe, home to thousands of South Londoners and a monument to the forgotten dreams and broken promises of successive governments.
Common Ground is a multi-layered immersive journey into the history, politics and human face of the current crisis in the UK housing system. Through the monolithic concrete blocks of the notorious Aylesbury Estate, the biggest social housing estate in Europe, audiences will enter the world of the estate from its birth in the 1960’s to its controversial redevelopment today. Stereoscopic 360 video, photogrammetry, 3D modelling, archive and interactivity allow this multifaceted VR documentary to question notions of community, examine the dis- enfranchisement and demonisation of the working class, and capture the sense of betrayal that residents feel when they are forced to move on.
