Landmarks are not only geographic but also biographical and 

personal John Berger (Dick Hedbidge, Subculture, The meaning of style, routledge1988, p.74)

 

Today ’s global population is faced with fast growing, progressive yet aggressive gentrification. 

 

What once stood proudly is slowly dissolving into the mist of time. 

London and its boroughs, are no stranger to this phenomenon.

I have been exploring landmarks and architectural structures that once stood for progress and revolution and are now are in the process of deconstruction. Alongside these landmarks stand modern architecture representing “progress and evolution”, but ironically,these too will eventually encounter the same fate.

 

My intention is not to judge gentrification, but to offer a point of reflection.

Is progression really good for us? What are the pro and cons? Are we losing individuality? And, as a result, is our multicultural society more unified or has it created a broader gap within cultures, therefore causing mistrust? What have we created and what are we leaving to our future society?
