Ronan Point, Clever Road, West Ham, London, after building collapse

RIBA3716
Newham. Department of Planning & Architecture
NOTES: Ronan Point, a 23-storey prefabricated council housing block, was built by Taylor Woodrow Anglian, using a technique known as Large Panel System building or LPS. This system relied on gravity holding everything together. On 15 May 1968 a natural gas explosion blew out the pre-cast concrete panels which formed the side of the building. The entire end of the block collapsed like a house of cards. Ronan Point, together with the eight other blocks on the estate, was demolished in 1986 and replaced with two-storey houses with gardens.

Modular terraced housing, Netherfield, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

RIBA4621
Milton Keynes Development Corporation. Architects Department
NOTES: Milton Keynes, which incorporated the existing towns of Bletchley, Wolverton and Stony Stratford along with another fifteen villages and farmland in between, was designated a new town in 1967 and planning control was thus taken from elected local authorities and delegated to the Milton Keynes Development Corporation (MKDC). The choice of prefabricated construction materials for this development was partly a consequence of a shortage of bricks in the UK at the time.
