Built in London in 1952, Golden Lane Estate was well ahead of its time and served as a model for many housing complexes, like the Barbican, which were built in England later on. It was a microcosm that had a powerful sense of community. The residents’ stories bring the building to life. The film shows that utopian construction practices do not always end in failure, but can in fact create strong social cohesion, which is increasingly under pressure in modern society – especially in cities like London.
