London’s population is increasing, as a city it is unable to successfully house its residents, in which they are being forced to move out of London and therefore have to commute back in, which has a diverse effect on TFL.
London is becoming a stagnant ecosystem. In which there is a call to bring back the concept of Residential tower blocks into the city to bring back a healthy balance of residential living, tourism, leisure and business.
Tower blocks were originally an emergency response to housing a large number of the population following the war. Riding on the back of modernism, residential tower blocks in London all demonstrate a different stage of social acceptance, quality, design and purpose. The last tower residential tower block to be constructed in London was the Shake sphere Tower, Barbican.
