Model of the Norfolk Park estate, Sheffield, England (c. 1962)
Designed by Sheffield City Architects Department, the estate was built from 1963 to 1968. It consisted of approximately 3000 properties in system-built houses, maisonettes and 15 tower blocks. Construction defects and social issues led to much of the estate being regenerated in the 1990s-2000s. View high resolution

Arlington House, Margate, Kent, UK (circa 1964).
The Arlington House development was greeted with much fanfare when it was proposed in the early 1960s, as the prominent site had long been dilapidated, giving new visitors a poor first impression when they left the train station (see artist’s impression). The block of 142 flats and shopping arcade were completed in 1963. The scale of the 19 storey building was unprecedented for Margate and it was probably Russell Diplock Associates’ most famous commission.
Over the years, the building has polarised the opinion of Margate’s population and its future now hangs in the balance. View high resolution

Southampton University Halls of Residence, Southampton, UK (circa 1964)

Designed by Robert Potter and Richard Hare, the extension to the halls of residence at Southampton University contrasted strongly with the Queen Anne style South Stoneham House. The 17 storey block forms the focal point of the scheme. Construction was highly industrialised, with no scaffolding used at all. Each student room is strongly expressed in the design of the facade, with concrete panels faced in a rough aggregate texture composed either of Cornish granite or Derbyshire spar.
