The history of British social housing can be traced on this walk through Bethnal Green, from fine examples of the work of the Victorian philanthropic housing movement to 20th century council housing, taking in the grandeur of the pivotal Boundary Street Estate (LCC) and works by two leading modernists – Lasdun and Lubetkin – working for a borough council that was radical in both its politics and its choice of architects.
